This Guy Creates Stunning Portraits With Old Wine Corks


American artist Scott Gundersen is giving a second life to thousands of wine corks. The origin of Gundersen’s wine cork portraits can be traced back to his travels through the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2007. He loved how so many of Congolese people wasted nothing– every item, whether an old water bottle, broken shoelace or the bark from the Banana tree, was creatively repurposed.  Compelled by the resourcefulness and ingenuity of the people he met in each village and market, Gundersen returned home dedicated to infuse his own art with these same concepts.
