Leo Haz is an artistic entity,
focused on sustainable art
processes with PET-bottles in
structured social environments.
The work of Leo Haz affects any thermoplastic reaction that is documented in the patented technic called PETing: Recycling of PET and other thermoplastics. Color and density of the sculptures and light objects are restricted via the food package-offer in the supermarket. On a trip to Montenegro, a poor european country he visited people building homes on the dumpsite next to the ocean. As a result he began to use trash instead of acrylic to paint. Using the whole bottle in the art prozess, PETing follows a zero waste concept to revive what is used in daily life . Leo Haz intention is to change the perception of our waste in to something more beautiful like Fine Art. Growing up with street art and graffiti, Leo was, at early ages, also inspired by old masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Kasimir Malewitsch and sozial critical artist Josef Beuys.
Learning to draw and how to edit pictures autodidact and through online video courses, he found a way to present his sculptures in a immanent dimension. This allows the viewer more space to interact with the work. Leo Haz is a collector not only when it comes to recycling material matters but also collecting digital art and NFTs from other artists around the globe. Exploring the interaction with different materials like gold, activated carbon and plastics is a significant distinction of PETing sculptures. The association of social avoided topics like trash with popular icons and symbols, creates a wide range of diversity in exhibitions for the audience.
Questening our daily consuming habbits and reducing the amount of waste to a endurable size, is maybe the best mindset, you can get, after beeing faszinated, what one can do with simple plastic trash.
