Gino Rizzi uses all kinds of domestic plastic that most people don't consider as valuable materials. He started recycling and looking for costless materials, when starting his artistic carreer in Paris after finishing his art studies in Urbino, Italy. He engaged children and their parents in this act of recycling, organising art workshops. This while working for a cultural centre and as an art teacher in public schools.
These experiences made him develop a whole new vision on plastic, which appeared an omnipresent sculptling material and also feed for discussion on very contemporary themes. His work, inspired in great extend by nature's beauty, expresses in a poetic way his concern about our planet or in his own words 'the plastification of nature'.
