Plastic Dreams consists of a reality that is constantly surrounded by the advantage of plastic. In our reality, we present Plastic Artifacts upcycled into a new form of visual expression. PLASTIC REALITY. PLASTIC DREAMS. PLASTIC LIFE.
WHAT WE KNOW

2.Our bad habits and ignorance are risking the lives of future generations. Your children and grandchildren might never experience a clean swim in the ocean.

WHAT WE BELIEVE AS ARTISTS
1.Art can change the way people think, feel and behave. When someone is emotionally touched, they start thinking different. If you can use art to touch someone’s soul, you can use art to cure.
2.Imagination and creativity are basic necessities in life often ignored.
3.Everything is constantly changing and transforming. Engaging in that transformation is a natural part of our life, mind and human nature.
4.Nature is wise, when something doesn’t make sense in nature, it shouldn’t make sense in our life. As human beings, we are directly connected with nature, therefore whatever negative effects on nature can cause negative effects on our own being.
5.The solution is change. Change is natural. The solution is natural.Engaging awareness is the first step towards the solution.
6.Respect is essential, respect for other humans, for other species, and overall respect for nature and for our Mother Earth. Mother Earth is another mother, and for that we should treat her like one.
