Inspired Aboriginal Dot Art
Aboriginal Art has survived for over thousands of years and continues to be one of the oldest art forms practiced today. Aboriginal Art consists of symbols. These symbols were used as a means of communication; communication of their lives on earth, their rituals, food, customs and also to show constellations and for ritual decorations. These works were almost always ceremonial or religious.
While much of the world may not be at all familiar with the idea of upcycling as a way of life, the artistic community has long been a proponent of "something from nothing." By creating works out of waste artists are showing the beauty that is present in the most mundane of things or one man's trash is another's treasure. These indivdiual efforts show how we can seperate ourselves from the waste cycle and embrace zero-waste living.
In addition to painting and creating upcylced art pieces, Thomas Nigro also enjoys screen printing. He uses recylced fabrics and creates unique designs.
