The vast oceans are a medium through which all the countries are connected. But, there is a big issue regarding the trash and the waste materials. All the trash collected is near the Mexico's Caribbean coastline in Sian Ka'an. Alejandro Duran is an artist who uses trash to create beautiful art and designs.
Alejandro collected trash from around 50 nations and 6 continents around the world. Here are some of the photographs of artworks that were made by Duran.
The working project of Duran is called "Washed Up" and was created to overcome the tension between the natural world and the drastically increasing wastes.
Focus of this project is to portray the condition of our oceans.
He created color based and site-specific sculptures by using all the plastic and other waste materials that came near the shore of the oceans.
Duran recently received the Juror's award and his work was also exhibited at Habana Outpost in Brooklyn.
