Caracas suburb is lit up by a Venezuelan mural artist using recycled plastic

A colorful mural is being painted on a cement wall on the outskirts of Caracas by dozens of children and older residents. They are carefully gluing plastic bottle caps to the surface. In only two weeks, a colorful mural displaying the edges of two enormous, blue-winged macaws has been created. In Guatire, 42 kilometers (26 miles) east of Venezuela’s capital, Oscar Olivares created an eco-mural that’s built from recycled materials.

It is our hope that they will continue to do so.” Osmara Aponte, a schoolteacher who brought half a dozen children to work on the mural, said the activity was a meaningful way for them to learn about recycling. “From lids to plastic, anything can be useful,” she explained.
