Waste not want not!

I was recently introduced to Cuban born duo, Guerra De La Paz after viewing their vibrant installation, 'Nine' at the 'Abstract America: New Painting and Sculpture' exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. The Miami-based pair find inspiration in the discarded objects of daily life and use recycled objects, predominantly clothes found in the waste bins of second-hand goods shipping companies, as their chosen medium. The duo create in order to speak out of the environmental issues that are affecting our society daily such as consumerism, mass production and most importantly mass-produced waste on our society. Here are some examples of their beautiful and thought provoking installations, enjoy!
