BORDALO II sculpts a massive seal out of found plastic for Vitality & Verve III at Long Beach Museum of Art in conjunction with POW! WOW! Long Beach.
Bordalo II was born in Lisbon and believes he belongs to a generation of extreme consumerism, materialism, and greed. As society continues to overproduce goods and carelessly throw away objects, the trash becomes Bordalo II’s medium and inspiration. He takes the waste that’s left behind and manipulates it, assembling and developing his works with the end-of-life material reflect an idea and message of sustainability, ecological, and social awareness.
