Uri Eliaz

Israeli artist Rehov Eilat’s studio is home to numerous quirky sculptures he’s created from objects he found exclusively in the ocean. But he isn’t just a sculptor who turns trash into art — he’s also a painter who foregoes the typical, pricey canvasses that many artists use. Instead, Eilat paints on delivery bags, old doors and even large canister lids.
