THE CRISIS OF OCEAN PLASTIC POLLUTION

Plastic in oceans is expected to outweigh fish by 2050. Oceana is actively working to stop this—but we need your help.

Recycling alone is not enough to solve the plastics crisis—we must reduce the amount of single-use plastic being produced and discarded. Your support helps us engage companies to adopt ocean-friendly alternatives.

We hope you’ll join us at SeaChange—together we’ll combat the plague of ocean plastic.

 

 

FEATURED ARTIST


Xav Marseille

Originally from France, I moved to the U.K. at the age of eighteen, after leaving Art school and my life in Paris. My work often draws on these two cultures, producing images that can sometimes be gritty, often shocking, yet often humorous at the same time. I have many diversed inspirations but my favourite artists include then likes of Robert Williams, David Hockney, and the incredible Andy Warhol.

Using my love for photography and self-taught editing techniques, I have, in the last few years, started to create some striking digital artwork, which I like to think of  as thought-provoking, modern and different. 

Living on a boat has definitely inspired some of my most recent pieces and I felt it would be interesting to use my art to raise awareness of how plastic pollution is affecting our seas and oceans, in a way that everyone could understand.
