Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

In researching this topic I became aware of the immensity of the problem of plastic pollution in the ocean, so I wanted to communicate the scale of the problem with this ‘seascape' of endless single-use drink bottles. The blue and green transparent bottles are intended to convey the crystal clear, clean water of my childhood home in Western Australia.

The Focus

Plastic pollution

Reduce your own plastic footprint by

  • Using a reusable water bottle and avoiding drinks bottled in plastic

  • Shopping in bulk, reducing packaging waste
  • Choosing reusable and compostable goods over less sustainable materials
