To a lot of men, Japanese artist Macaon has the perfect job and it’s not difficult to see why.
He gets to drink beer and soda and then recycles the cans by twisting them into much-loved superstars from comic books, film and video games.
Macaon transforms the old aluminium into iconic figures like Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Toy Story, a Decepticon from Transformers, a mask of Star Wars villain Darth Vader and video play station hero Super Mario.

– Wall-E was created by the artist Macaon with the help of beer cans
Cola cans and energy drinks made up the materials for Super Mario and the Smurf
Disney’s robot WALL-E, the trash compacting robot, is the perfect subject for a recycled can sculpture.
While childhood favorite Pikachu from the Pokémon TV series is created using Japanese drinks in a bright golden yellow.
Each can is selected for color, and painstakingly cut up and bent into position with the skill of an origami master.
Other examples of the artist’s amazing work can be seen on his Japanese website.

Every picture, letter, and label printed on the surface of each can is always partly visible on the finished figures which also include a dragon fly, scorpion, a fish and a kingfisher bird.
There is one riddle: How did Macaon get through so many beer cans and still have such a steady hand?
