DSIDE. Our Plastic

13th December.

DSIDE announces his new project; to spend the next four months traveling the a lap of New Zealand’s North Island, following the coasts to get to as many beaches as possible, picking up all the pollution he can, as much of ’Our Plastic’ as possible..

This project, ‘OUR PLASTIC’ has been in development for years, though was finally announced this week, with a video [link below] and a supporting crowdfund campaign [link below] to help the initial phase, and to encourage as much local collaboration and shared participation during the four months. Most of the plastic collected will go to local facilities, though a select amount will be shipped back to Dside’s studio to be used for the second phase of the project ‘MADE OF OUR PLASTIC’ -details of this second phase will remain secret until mid 2019. [Further details and outline of the OUR PLASTIC project available if required]

..The Artist is one of Wellington’s most prolific street painters, now working solo as DSIDE after over a decade of being the anonymous half of the BMD duo [which publicly ended in October 2016]. Utilising this long standing public position to activate and discuss local and global Environmental and Conservation issues. Dside recently had his first Gallery Exhibition, EXTINCTED, where there was a line of 100’s down the street waiting for the doors to open, and then a capacity full Gallery, only to have all the works unexpectedly painted out grey mid show, in response to current Extinction realities. Dside is continuing this public interaction and cause awareness through direct concept with OUR PLASTIC..
