Turning Spray Cans Into Art

  • April 11, 2012
  • In: Art



Canlove is a collective of artists devoted to recycle empty spray paint cans found on graffiti zones and turning them into various artworks. Love the idea and its results.

So far Canlove recycled 12,780 cans and countng.


At CANLOVE, we have a special relationship with the spray can. We love them. And because we love them we feel compelled to raise them up and treat them with the respect they deserve. Many think that when the can stops spraying its job is over – that it can be kicked to the curb and left behind. Surprisingly, even after these metallic spray soldiers have emptied they still have so much to offer. We make it our jobs to unlock their latent potential. Just as the American Indians respected the buffalo, the artists at CANLOVE adore spray cans and ensure that nothing goes to waste. We like to think we’re setting the soul of each spray can free, allowing it to rest in peace (or pieces), and memorializing it as a true work of art.


You can see the full Canlove artwork and even buy one  here.
