Brazilian artist Eduardo Srur has recently reproduced the works of renowned artists just with recycled shreds of plastic which are all picked up from his city, streets and rivers, without a single drop of paint. This work has been portrayed in his latest exhibition where he has replicated Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet and Warhol etc. with the accumulation of plastic waste to raise concern amongst people about the environment.

About this work, he has said that these creations will remain forever in the history of mankind and so will the plastic which have been dumped into nature since forever. Eduardo’s show named "Natureza Plástica" ('Plastic Nature') will soon premiere in the second phase of 2021 in Sao Paulo.
