Eddy De Azevedo collects trash and discarded objects on his walks with his dog. He then turns these into colorful art pieces.  De Azevedo’s pieces are beautiful and bright, but they also bring to light the amount of pollution in the oceans. His works cover “20 kilometers of wandered beach and hundreds of pieces of debris. More than 600 lighters, 1000 bottle caps, 200 fishermen gloves, and 2000 plastic bottles make up some of his materials for these works.” De Azevedo impressively creates beauty from everyday objects, but also questions the sheer amount of waste that humans create and the way that this negatively impacts our environment.
