Yellow-faced Thingy in the Centro Cultural Borges

Exhibition of at Centro Cultural Borges, Argentina
I don't know if this funny guy is an allusion to Homer Simpson. I guess not. I believe the artist would find this inappropriate. No offense, Homer. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the artist so I don't know whom to give the credit to. This corroded figure belongs to an exhibition of interesting sculptures made from trash I saw last year at the Centro Cultural Borges in downtown Buenos Aires.
Trash or treasure?

When I saw this, I thought of the phrase from a song, "Put on a happy face."

He's silly but kinda cute.

I love it when artists take trash and turn it into something interesting.

I like it. I've seen a studio in Boston that does similar type sculptures and I find them very whimsical.
