Artist Gilbert Angeles uses shredded plastics, expired paint and leftover wood

FILIPINO ARTIST, GILBERT ANGELES, SAYING:"We are the third contributor of plastic waste into the ocean, the third in world. When I found out about that, I had to think of ways to raise awareness and knowledge on the reasons why we contribute these waste. I make these artworks to raise awareness so we could fight against the trash in our area, to make us more responsible in how we dispose of our trash, and to make us aware of where our trash goes after they are thrown away."
