German conceptual artist Ole Ukena enjoys utilizing various resources like text, video, photography, drawing and sculpture. Probably, his most distinctive work includes those made of recycled materials mixed with a bit of humor. The first art piece above is called “Protected Paradise”, wherein he actually used barbed wire. You would be amazed to know as you look into the piece that was at first you thought like it was just a typical rainbow structure.
With this symbol of peace artwork called “In The Absence of War”, Ukena used about 20,000 tiny green plastic army men mounted on two wooden panels and sandpaper.
Nails are also part of the list of Ukena which he used to spell out the word “trust”.
Ukena makes use of matches as well. With this one, “work” was spelled out many times using matches before being burnt in the lower corner. This symbolizes overworking to the point of burning oneself out.
