Instead of getting rid of his old cans, Makaon, an artist from Japan, uses his talent to turn them into fantastic, colorful works of art, many of which are tributes to famous characters in pop culture.
His intricately crafted sculptures feature characters from popular culture, from Buzz Lightyear and Darth Vader to Batman, Pikachu and many others. See for yourself.
