'Sea Turtle', September 2018
Upcycled plastic straws and lids on wood base
180 cm x 120cm
Commissioned by KFC Hong Kong
As part of KFC's plastic reduction program, the brand has commissioned me to make an artwork made from over 2,000 plastic straws and lids collected in store.
Upcycled art is creating something new and more valuable using disposable materials and products. I wanted to show people all the interesting ways you can get creative with single-use plastics. By creating this artwork, I hope to help raise public awareness about protecting our environment and sea life.
The artwork is now on display at the KFC store in Ma On Shan, Hong Kong.
