Have you heard of the term "upcycling art"? It refers to the process of transforming useless, unwanted materials into amazing artwork. Next, we bring you the stories of artists who transform garbage from the sea into products of artistic value.

[Pkg]

Large amounts of garbage wash ashore on Jeju-do Island every day. Wood blocks worn out by waves and winds are collected one by one. This garbage is reborn as miniature houses at the hands of an artist. Kim Ji-hwan's upcycled artworks bearing the smell of sea are attracting so much attention that they have been invited to an exhibition in Japan.

[Soundbite] Kim Ji-hwan(Upcycling Artist) : "I think the work is about finding new life in abandoned materials. As an artist, I add a little value to them."

Shards of glass are difficult to dispose of. But they are a valuable material for an artist. As the shards are polished and regain gloss, they look as shiny as jewels. Rings and necklaces made with marine litter are so popular that the supply cannot meet demand.

[Soundbite] Kang Min-seok(Upcycling Artists' Group "Jaejudo Joa") : "They are ordinary rings and don't glisten as much as diamonds. But they are more meaningful and valuable."

Coupled with artistic sense and skills, the devotion to protect the sea is leading to the creation of valuable upcycled products.
