Plastic art against irresponsible consumption
The sun warms your skin, the sound of the sea serves your ears and the light summer breeze plays with your hair – a wonderful day on the beach. Yes, only if these horrible plastic residues were not to see! Unfortunately, the problem with plastic waste has become serious worldwide. Plastic is everywhere already. An innovative, useful product it turned into a plague. The latest scientific studies prove that plastic can be found even in the bodies of animals. Chemicals for this substance are practically in every living thing, including to discover ourselves. The positive approach includes the recycling of plastic waste. Unfortunately, the consumption and the production of plastic are much more intense than the processing and recycling of the material. Another rather symbolic method against the plastic pollution is the plastic art. It is a relatively recent phenomenon which has as its goal the raising of environmental awareness of the people.
Beautiful sculptures, which all deserve to be admired arising from plastic waste
Most sculptures here belong to the project Washed Ashore of the Artula Institute in Oregon, United States. The main reservations of the project is to move the people and especially the youth to a more conscious consumer and dealing with plastic. It comes to a positive and constructive approach that should counteract the indifference of our consumer society. The plastic art is at the same time also pretty scary, by showing us in a creative way, what we actually did. Which serious damage have caused our economic and industrial development of nature.
A disgruntled fish from plastic waste
The tiger shark and the little Mermaid from our today’s collection were made by Xandi Kreuzeder. The native German lives for a long time in Portugal and as a natural talent in art, he creates sculptures made from plastic and other discarded items with the aim to promote environmental awareness among the people. The Save the planet slogan is for him not just a banal phrase, but a true creed, which you can devote his entire life.
