Multi-media visual artist and activist Dianna Cohen, has been at the forefront of confronting the issue of plastic pollution over the past 25 years. Based in Los Angeles, she is best known for her two-dimensional and three-dimensional works using recycled plastic bags sewn together. Her work ranges from small hanging pieces to room-sized installations. Her repurposing of plastic shopping bags draws attention to our consumer society and the effect it has on our environment, especially the oceans.
In the summer of 2009, Cohen and others founded the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a “global alliance of individuals, organizations and businesses working together to stop plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on humans, animals, the ocean and the environment.”
