Mexican Artist Melts 1,527 Confiscated Guns, Makes Shovels To Plant Trees
In Culiacán, a city in western Mexico, the city with the highest rate of gun deaths in the nation, many people know the devastating consequences of guns. That’s where creative activist Pedro Reyes comes in.
Reyes — from Mexico City — is an inspired artist who likes to focus on the failures of modern culture in a positive light. He doesn’t believe in failure but instead believes that failure is the outcome of a certain perspective.
With this unique perception, he transforms things people see as broken and models them in a new way.
