Creative Creations from Objects Found in the Streets

Using everyday objects that he collected from the streets of Berlin, German artist Martin Roller constructs intriguing and surprising mash-ups. Each new creation looks transformed and as if it is on display in an advertisement. In Roller’s surreal world, a hairbrush has sharpened pencils in place of its bristles and a set of “shoes” is actually a pair of bananas with bright white shoelaces. Roller’s unique eye even manages to turn a car tire into a visually deceiving birthday cake. No matter what the mash-up, each piece takes on a futuristic quality that is both surreal and oddly realistic in its execution.
