Street Artist from Almaty (Kazakhstan),

She mainly uses plastic as a base material in her work,
as a reaction to our culture of consumerism that is unscrupulously exploiting toxic materials.
Сonsumer culture exploit harmful materials to Earth blindly.
We are witnessing the time when lifestyle of every person tend to have direct impact on geological processes of the planet. Plastic covers different regions of the planet hardly, may be the cause of appearing enormous floating plastic islands, exists in space as space debris, gathers and circulates in Earth ecosystem, with just a little chance to be dissolved fully.
Plastic has become a part of culture and lifestyle of society infected by idea of consumption, and art can be seen as one of the effective methods to inculcate the awareness of coming global ecological crisis.
