ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- A local folk artist has displayed his art made from recyclables at a coffee shop in Nob Hill.

Kenny Chavez gathers unwanted, discarded raw materials to produce his one of a kind art.

Currently, his artwork is displayed at Satellite Coffee; it will be showcased the month of February.

Some of the materials Chavez uses for his art include tins, bailing wire, bottle caps, and old toys. Most of these are fashioned into decorative wall hangings and sculptures.

Chavez also manages Mask Y Mas, where local artists can sell their goods.

On May 2, Chavez and his partner David Fisher will be selling their artwork at the Cinco de Mayo Folk Art and Music Festival held at the La Parada Mercantile and Farm and Table Restaurant on 4th Street.
