Title:
Think differently

Author:
Nizar Sbaih

Description:
The "Think differently" series. Artwork (painting) using disposable masks. 21 x 30 cm. The “Think Differently” project aims to highlight a new type of pollution: The COVID-19 waste. Hospitals, healthcare facilities and individuals are producing more and more waste from single-use face masks than ever before. According to environmental NGOs, waste from face masks are increasingly ending up on the streets and in the oceans, and have become more and more invisible to us. I came up with this project from witnessing many single-use face masks strewn across the streets and parks of Paris. The main idea is to give a new life to my single-use face masks by creating beautiful shapes and colours. The environment is at risk because of our actions. The challenges we face today, like climate change, really impact humans and other plant and animal species that coexist alongside us. As an artist and a human, I believe that positive impact starts with raising awareness and inspiring change...and art is one of the best tools to do that.
