The Fuenlabrada City Council (Community of Madrid) and Cada Lata Cuenta have inaugurated two sustainable murals made with recycled beverage cans for the Christmas festivities.
These two Pixelatas are created from 4000 recycled cans and establish a contrasting conversation between the image of a girl and the deep and direct gaze of a chimpanzee.
The installation suggests how the chimpanzee, which shares 99% of its genes with humans, behaves so differently. It lives in harmony with the rest of the creatures allowing the ecosystem to be sustainable in the long term. However, the human being seems to function in the opposite way to the chimpanzee, living disconnected from nature, following an unsustainable life model.
For the second consecutive year, the Fuenlabrada City Council has collaborated with Cada Lata Cuenta to spread the message of sustainability and recycling to the people through recycled art, reminding them that even during the holidays, they should never stop caring about the environment.
