Greek artist morphs trash into amazing musical instrumentsSince they transform almost anything – surplus, disused and discarded – into musical instruments, folks at Art-Eco-Art Recycled Art & Musical Instruments seem to be more than obsessed with the magnetism of music. Be it paper, cardboard, advertising banners, digital piano keyboard, fabrics, denim, synthetic leather – if it’s unessential, they’d convert the discarded stuff into musical instruments like violins, pianos, cello, guitars, etc.
A collaboration between two new bands EcoArt and ArtEco, the team of
creatives believe that thousands of things can be recycled to create
musical instruments. The team leader Chris Tsonias has so far created more than 15
musical instruments. With no intentions to replace normal wooden
musical instruments, Chris aims to introduce a novel element of
sustainability into his creations. His fully handmade instruments fairly
succeed in cast a spell on those who listens to soothing music coming
out of his musical instruments.
Each instrument is an outcome of 25 to 60 days of hardwork, patience
and devotion. When asked for, the creator creates one-of-a-kind pieces
for his Greek and international patrons. All items are sold with a
warranty with repair and maintenance already covered.
