SHARKastics logo


Creating art out of marine debris is very fun & rewarding!  There are so many super talented artists who are utilizing this free, endless supply of materials of all colors, shapes & sizes.

Use your imagination & get started...  See ya at Ka'ehu!

Submit your pieces to Malama Nui Nui's annual "Art of Trash!"


These SHARKastics were collected at Kanapou, Kaho'olawe where there are thousands more we picked up...

No plastics were harmed in the making of this collage.  Every piece you see here is how we found them- no cuts were made.

Every piece has evidence of multiple bite marks of different sizes and patterns.  What’s biting/eating marine debris?  I named them after sharks, but many other animals seem to be munching plastic too: apex predator fish, sea turtles, seabirds, marine mammals, etc.

I especially love to use ghost net bundles, ropes & knots for my creations since they offer such a variety of possibilities.  Contact me for a custom order!
