guerra de la paz: recycled sculpture
Cuban born artist and sculptor Guerra De La Paz creates sculptural art works out of discarded, recycled clothing. Larger soft sculptures are made from t-shirts, shoes, boots, socks, etc. Much of the items comes from secondhand stores in Little Haiti, Miami. The message Guerro De La Paz conveys with their recycled clothing art is about the consume-and-discard nature of our mass-produced lifestyles. Our habits of consumption put us so very far away from the creation of the items we use– and just as far away from the piles of trash they become.
