Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

Speaking about plastic pollution in our oceans has become a familiar subject, especially living in a coastal city. With that in mind, I wanted to be direct in the message of my mural without being redundant—especially because I feel St. Petersburg, specifically, has taken measures in the last few years to begin a huge effort to minimize the plastic waste we produce here. Staying true to my aesthetic, I intended to create a colorful atmosphere that makes the subject approachable and ultimately leaves viewers with a sense of positivity toward the future of our efforts in reducing plastic waste.
