Item details

‘Transparency’, is my contribution to #trashedcoachella for Global Inheritance and my second bin after 13 years. Hopefully ‘seeing’ is believing with liter and waste reduction using reference photos came from my ‘Four Corners Project’ installation for this painting. Every day we actually have evolved where plastic saves lives and makes humanity safer as a whole, but single-use plastic bags, water bottles, straws, containers, cutlery should be fazed out for bio-degradable options. We have the technology, but will it always be profit over pollution? That’s the politics we’re playing right now.

Meet the Creator

This is what I’ve learned in four years of not knowing what I’m doing: Be kind, be brave. That’s my mantra. The thing I think helps me so I can go and create, is being kind. And when life is hard, because it will certainly be hard, you have to be brave. Be brave when you’re terrified, take a deep breath. It’s going to be okay.

Josh Scheuerman is a painter, graphic designer and photographer known for using his artistic talents to promote community and environmental activism in his native Salt Lake City and abroad. In early 2013, he collected 500+ pounds of plastic from the farthest corners of Utah for a public art installation called Four Corners: Eliminating Single Use Plastic Bags that was presented at TED-X SLC and PechKucha. In 2016, he traveled to Spain to recreate a mural for the city of Sant Carles de la Ràpita he had originally painted in 2012. In 2017, he shared a retrospective of his work for Salt Lake Design Week titled, Act Like You Know What You are Doing. He was also in a group show, Urban Plein Air at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, curated by THE BLOCKS, Salt Lake’s Cultural Core in September 2018. His most recent work includes murals of historical sites and places, including one promoting preservation of the Bears Ears National Monument, after the Trump administration dramatically reduced its foot print in 2018.
