Toxic Artwork

I  love this work by John Sabraw because he has combined elements of art and science by using toxic substances to create pieces of art. Sabraw uses sludge from polluted rivers so that he can highlight the effects from the issue of coal mining pollution. I love that by using something so toxic and harmful he has been able to create such beautiful and colourful pieces of art. As well as how he has used art in order to share a message with people about how we are damaging the environment through our continued use of coal mines.
