Arsenio Rodriguez

Arsenio Rodriguez (Cadiz, 1973) has been involved for more than 20 years in recycling art projects. He lives and works close to the sea in Cadiz, Spain. To create greater awareness for the global waste plastic problem and the plastic pollution he creates magical ‘underwater worlds’ from the materials that are destroying the seas in a rapid pace. The plastics that wash ashore are collected by the artist and are processed in his art works. Through his art works Arsenio creates an environment in which children and grown-ups can experience the fascinating particularities of human beings that on the one hand can create beauty but are destroying it at the same time.
