Familiar with Eduardo Srur? Initially starting his career as a painter and visual artist, the Brazilian has gone on to explore new media such as photography, sculpture, video, performance, installation and urban intervention. But Eduardo is most known for his PET projects. His most recent dramatic installation involved him placing thirty giant 40ft long inflatable plastic PET bottles along Brazil’s Tiete River banks to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and clean water.
So when Protest found themselves on the look out for an artist with which to collaborate for their rad new 100% recycled boardies, Eduardo Srur seemed like the perfect match.
Speaking about their collaboration the artist said: “The chosen image for this collaboration is an oil on canvas painting which is part of my urban intervention Labyrinth. It is a giant installation with hundreds of burdens of recyclable waste that was on display in the main public parks in the city of São Paulo. In this painting we see dozens of aluminum cans, crushed and compacted in the shape of a cube. Art is universal and in this project we are giving a boost of energy to materials that were consumed and discarded by society. Now, they’ve become content to create paintings and quality clothing.”
