The Art of Recycling: Reinventing and Transforming Found and Discarded Materials
Staten Island, New York (PRWEB) February 24, 2016
The average person generates over 4 pounds of trash every day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. The EPA estimates that 75% of the American waste stream is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it. How can we be more efficient?
Avi Gvili and Chris Spollen, the authors of The Art of Recycling, will present new, cutting edge ideas for recycling in the 21st century as they discuss what it means to re-imagine and transform found and discarded materials into art, the central tenet in the work of Chris Spollen.
A full color, three hundred page art book by Boulevard Books, The Art of Recycling reimagines the future of recycling. Readers will be captivated as they follow the exciting steam punk narrative that accompanies the eye popping images.
Over the past thirty years in his role as an award-winning illustrator, Chris Spollen’s work has evolved from working with the then, traditional materials on paper, to his current love for creating evocative, expansive digital mixed media projects, along with scouring locales for found objects that find their way into three dimensional sculptures that reflect his love for space, steamship punk and the sea.
