Haby Diallo

Senegal (EN, FR)

I'm Haby Diallo and I invite everyone to contribute to the preservation and care of our environment and to give multiple lives to the non-bio-degradable plastic waste. I am giving this material a second life by creating objects that are useful, accessible and practical for everyday life. In December 2013, I started the "I am" project. It‘s originality lies in the transformation of plastic bottles into bags, cases, coffee tables, pen holders etc. I also show my work in art exhibitions and organize workshops for children and adults.

Together let’s be creative
