"Evolution of the Can"

I loved this one for being so simple and yet creative.


"Jaime Guerrero creates art in a variety of media. A graduate of Wyoming Technical Institute with a degree in Automotive Collision/Refinishing and Upholstery, he is skilled at airbrushing, pin striping, upholstery, and automotive and audio/video installations, and he also has created residential and commercial landscaping plans, as well as charcoal art. Now he’s added aluminum art to his repertoire – most prominently, “Evolution of Can,” which depicts Darwin’s theory of evolution. In Guerrero’s work, the progression from all fours to an upright spine is represented by the angle of the cans.


Guerrero didn’t stumble on Art of Can by accident. The 29-year-old was actively looking for opportunities to share his creative ideas. A resident of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, he came up with designs for entry in the Chicago Art of Can event and would have been content to travel there if necessary; but serendipitously his “Evolution” was accepted for the Philadelphia show only a couple of hours from his home. “Creating these pieces has inspired me to create new and exciting artwork with the use of cans – not only to be sent in [for contests/exhibitions] but to have in the home,” he states. “I can’t wait to share these new works of art with everyone.”
