Maya Watson

My work/life has been adapted due to the current situation of the Covid-19 pandemic. I have had to adjust to many changes since being on lock down along with the rest of the world.

The materials I have used are all recyclable plastics, this is to represent the threat to marine organisms, also to raise awareness of global warming.

I found inspiration from Joel Harlow and special effects films associated with the ocean. The excitement of the mystery of the ocean and what lies deep down at the depths of the ocean has helped me evolve my work, into a demonic squid. An evil faring character who is at war with humans for polluting his world.

I also found inspiration in Fashion designer Bethany Williams who really pushes to make the world a better place. The different style of clothing and textures used in her pieces has helped me evolve my work to uses different materials and use more eco-friendly materials.

The personal protection mask uses are made from 100% recycled materials, and is not only a fashion statement but also a form of protection, in a stance to make the world a greener place.
