Butt Really,

Image credit: 

Regardless of your feelings about smoking, I'm sure we can all agree that cigarette butts are pretty disgusting. After all, they're essentially saliva and tar-filled packages that smell as bad as they look. Perhaps that's what makes Jinks Kunst's portrait of French musician Serge Gainsbour so memorable -it's created entirely from cigarette butts.

The artist spent three years collecting over 20,000 used cigarette filters to create the image. The singer was known for smoking, so the medium is a fitting tribute for the subject, but it is also a great way to recycle something that otherwise would have ended up in the streets, storm drains and landfills of France.
