Rubber Power: Amazing sculptures made from used tires

If you have some old tires lying around in your house somewhere, lots of patience and talent, perhaps you'd like to take a stab at transforming them into one of these sculptures by South Korean artist Yong Ho Ji. 

These works of art are truly astounding. Ji takes used tire strips, cuts, twists, bends, shapes, and molds them to his demands to create beautifully disturbing sculptures of humans, monsters, hybrid creatures and other animals. The process is labor intensive, and it can take up to three months to complete a piece.

Ji received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture at Hongik University in 2005. He obtained his Masters in Fine Arts in 2008 from New York University and has displayed numerous solo and group exhibitions.
