In the category of artistic recycling of tyres, we have already presented the Millegomme community. With sculptor Mirko Siakkou-Flodin we are transported into another universe in which the tyre rhymes with finesse and elegance.

His work inspires admiration, particularly when we understand the lack of flexibility and the roughness of the raw material involved.

His artistic bent consists in giving life to piles of carcasses, by forming subtle assemblies and rendering the tyres more docile. 

Rubber acts just like a natural skin. His subtle designs give life to these imaginary animals and creations, conferring upon them a real expressivity and quite a disturbing realism.
