At TEDxWarwick 2017, John will share the story of his current collaboration, Toxic Art, which involves creating paint from iron oxide extracted during the process of remediating polluted streams. All of John’s paintings are produced using these unique paints; as well as being visually stunning, his work addresses issues of environmental sustainability.
John Sabraw is an artist, activist and environmentalist; his paintings, drawings and collaborative installations are produced in an eco-conscious manner and he continually works toward a fully sustainable practice. He is a Professor of Art at Ohio University and Board Advisor at Scribble Art Workshop in New York. His art is in numerous collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Honolulu, Emprise Bank, and Accenture Corp. He has been featured in Smithsonian, New Scientist and the Discovery Channel.
