Artists Point out to Environmental Problems With Trash Bag Art

Murmure is a team of two artists from France, Paul Ressencourt and Simon Roche, who want to raise awareness of environmental problems by illustrating how trash bags affect people’s and animals’ lives. They’re not trying to be subtle at all; instead, their art is straightforward and aims to show how directly our bad habits impact the world around us.

“The main idea was to play with the colors of a regular black garbage bag as much as possible,” Colossal quotes the team. “Not only for dramatic appeal, but also for the depth of shades and, somehow, the elegance of its texture and reaction to light.” In order to achieve this, they use graphite pencils.

They create art on different mediums, from paper to walls, but the message is always the same. Scroll down to see it.
