Thank you to Sabco-UAE for the wonderful article, “The Art of Recycling Art Exhibition with Mariska Nell”
Read the full article here.
“Where some see empty soda cans and Nespresso Capsules as items that should be tossed into the trash, Mariska sees art. It is for this reason that Mariska Nell started creating art that combines painted portraits and recycled materials.
Nespresso Capsules and soda cans were just a beginning of what Mariska has been able to repurpose using her art. Shopping bags, bottled water caps and even candy wrappers have all been part of the pieces that she creates to tell the stories of her subjects.
The exhibition, which will be held in Al Zarouni Building in Al Barsha, will then open to the public on Wednesday 18thOctober (9am – 1pm) and Thursday 19th October (1pm – 5pm).
Mariska will also be hosting workshops for adults on 19th October at 10am and for children on the 19th October at 4pm.”
