Welcome Aaron Kraftz
Sustainability continues to be at the centre of political, economic, and social discussions. As debates heat up, so does our planet, and contemporary art has joined the debate through the recycled art movement. Glass bottles, plastic bags and other waste that would end up filling landfills or floating in the sea have, in the hands of some artists, become a form of sustainable art that highlights the degradation of the planet and amaze with its originality. The possibilities stretch as far as once imagination.
Each bit of waste has its own personality and character. It’s a brush stroke and imagination waiting to be placed on the right piece of art. This inspires me to transform common household waste of paper, cardboard, wood, glass, plastics, metals into unusual pieces of art that attract from a distance and surprise from up close.
Creating beauty lifts my soul and affords me respite from everyday life. In my work I focus on simple themes, and use acrylic color, used bottles of various color and shape, and any paper with an interesting color, pattern, or texture. I have a particular fondness for vibrant colors. Each piece of waste, however small, is hand-torn and mixed with the different object and patterns to express beauty that can transform any dull corner of your home, office & restaurant into vibrant corner.
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I love creating them.
