I ran into Balázs Csizik‘s work just the other day, looking around on Behance to see some of the latest projects. I stopped at this one, though. The Hungarian photo artist and graphic designer has created artful compositions in criticism of pollution. Balázs used rubbish he found across beaches, such as colored plastic straws or bottle caps to create minimalist, yet meaningful pieces. Waste Suprematism, as the series is titled, also pays homage for the Russian avant-garde artist and art theorist, Kazimir Malevich, whose pioneering work and writing had a profound influence on the development of non-objective, or abstract art, in the 20th century.
This series is based on feeling guilty about finding beauty in these colorful plastic pieces, despite they are garbage and also represent one of the biggest challenge to solve for humanity: to reduce the pollution of the Oceans. We always find these little objects disturbing and dangerous for our nature when we notice them on the seashore, but generally don’t do anything further. We can find the aesthetics of these elements in arranged compositions and also can think about that we should raise awareness of this problem. (source)
