Pinoy artist converts recyclable materials into artistic face masks to raise Covid-19 awareness


Philippine-based Leeroy New has found a way to raise awareness on the new coronavirus while staying at home by creating creative face masks composed of recyclable materials such as plastic bottles, cups, and shuttlecocks.

New makes these face masks in his studio in Quezon City, Manila.

His artworks are currently displayed in his studio. Many netizens have shared the unique art of New, saying it’s out-of-this-world idea.

According to New, the art that he’s worked on is part of KONTRA COVID campaign that uses different types of arts and designs to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus in the Philippines.

“Ito ay panawagan sa lahat ng Filipino artists, designers, at content creators para tulungan maintindihan at malabanan ng mga lokal na pamayanan natin ang Covid-19 pandemic,” New wrote in a Facebook post.
