Amarildo Silva is a unique artist who lives in Campina Grande, Brazil. The incredible artist found a fantastic way to recycle, make beautiful art, and help many street animals survive the cold better.
Silva loved to take old or broken items and combine them into dazzling art. He has a soft spot for animals, so it’s no wonder that his work headed in their direction.
Brazil is known for their stray animal problems. They have an incredible number of strays, which they can’t seem to control. The country is helpless in the faces of many homeless animals and people daily. Eventually, Silva couldn’t take it anymore and decided to devote his time to help better the matter in any way he can.
The creative artist started to design beds for the strays, by using old tires and a lot of passion
The sweet artist wanted to do anything to help, so he kept thinking about a solution or an act that could better the situation.
One day, an incredible idea practically fell on his head, when he perceived that many strays find a way to keep warm by curling up inside used tires. Silva realized that he could reuse the tires, and make amazing, beautiful beds for the strays, which will keep their nights warm, and make the city look much more colorful and happier.
Silva went from place to place and collected many used tires to make his passion project a reality.
Silva is only 23 years old. He always dreamt about being an independent artist
The 23-year-old artist has been trying to make it for years and wished to become a self-reliant artist. He’s been working in a supermarket to make ends meet but kept looking for new ways to become recognized as a genuine artist. This incredible project had caught many people’s attention and made his business quite famous.
No wonder people are praising Silva for his passionate work: it helps his town look better, care for animals, helps the environment, and reduces waste. All of these benefits come to show how amazing this venture truly is.
Tires are considered harmful waste and take years to recycle. Silva found a better way to repurpose them into art. He scrubs the tires for hours, to make sure that their safe for sleep, and cuts them into beautiful, cozy beds.
The sweet artist works hard on every tire bed and tries to make them look as distinctive and as comfy as possible. He dyes them with beautiful colors and gives each design his magic touch. He changes the shapes of the beds, and names each pet that gets a bed.
The essential part is comfort, so Silva makes sure that each bed has a soft cushion and pillows to keep the animals nice and cozy during the night.
The creative artist first sold the first few beds to friends and co-workers. He soon came to realize that people like his product. Consequently, he decided to quit his job, dedicate all of his time to the project and finally, focus only on his art.
Many people loved Silva’s idea, and his brand was starting to make waves all over his hometown
After a short while, he was already selling many tire beds; over 1,500 were sold so far, thus making our world a better, cleaner place.
Silva was soon asked to lecture about the way he helps many animals through his innovative vision and highlights the importance of recycling. He visits schools and community events frequently and loves to raise awareness.
Due to his success, Silva developed his very own brand called Cãominhas Pets. It aims to supply recycled, sustainable, comfy, and beautiful tire beds for strays and pets who’ve already found their forever home.
Silva decided to specialize in making art out of recycled materials. He loves caring for the environment while doing his work. His new recent project is to make recycling containers out of recyclables, which is another fantastic idea! So innovative!
