Plastic Waste Installation at DFS Bali Airport – Now to 31 October

In collaboration with DFS Bali Airport, Bali Airport authorities, Bye Bye Plastic Bags Youth Movement and artists Monez and Marmar a stunning artwork made entirely from over 3500 pieces of plastic waste is being installed on Thursday and Friday 19 – 20 September and will be on view until the end of October. Monez is a Balinese illustrator who gets his inspirations from Balinese fables and folk-tales and has exhibited his digital and hand-drawn works from Asia to Africa and the United States. He created the illustration for the Plastic Waste Installation. Balinese sculptor Marmar is well known for building eco-friendly ogoh-ogoh, the giant puppets trotted out the Eve of Nyepi. He was tasked with meeting the challenge to transform Monez’s illustration into a lively 3D art installation. If you are travelling in or out of the International Airport in Bali, take a few moments to view this creative effort.
