Waste Suprematism By Balazs Csizik

A colorful photography series that looks at ocean pollution from a different perspective.

As plastic pollution wreaks havoc on nature, oceans and sealife often pay the heaviest price. Hungarian photographer and visual artist Balazs Csizik explores the impact of this problem in a creative way. His Waste Suprematism series presents plastic pollution not as an ugly mark on wild landscapes, but as artistic compositions. By enhancing the contrast between nature and the unnatural vibrancy of the man-made materials, the artist puts the spotlight back on ocean pollution. The aim? To move beyond the sight of the random bag, coffee cup, or pieces of plastic that have become so familiar, they don’t even elicit a reaction anymore. The series emphasizes the danger of polluting natural landscapes and oceans by providing a different point of view.

In order to raise awareness to the issue, the artist has drawn inspiration from the Russian Suprematism art movement of the early 1900s. Suprematism artworks are colorful, bold, and striking. Likewise, the Waste Suprematism series features found pieces of plastic that recreate the movement’s signature geometric shapes, circles, and lines. Set up in abstract compositions, the bright plastic stands out against rocks and sandy beaches. A creative protest, the series puts the focus on one of the biggest challenges facing humanity today. And it does so with ingenuity and artistic flair. Photographs© Balazs Csizik.
