Today, you cannot help but be moved and affected by the shocking tragedies that have been appearing daily in the news. The earthquake and environmental catastrophes, along with the continuing human tragedies coming from the Middle East and Africa have reached staggering proportions.
As we have been selecting some of the recycled hubcap artworks from the Landfillart Collection for the upcoming series of exhibitions, certain ones have been especially thought-provoking.
The artists that have contributed to this collection come from every one of the 50 states in the US and nearly 50 countries.
This extraordinary artwork created by Aida Vosoughi from Iran is especially perceptive and profound
You Were Born & Stuck In The Middle Of A Dangerous Game…Yes! It’s Just A Game! But We Are Sorry To Inform You…You Are The Only Real Object There!!
I have a sense of duty to do something for it and the Landfillart Project is a gate to respect it. I am also dealing with events that these days happened in my hometown and as an artist think to the ways I can reflect it to the international audiences and again Landfillart is a true way. Aida Vosoughi

Another one of Aida’s beautiful artworks, The Game! can be seen at:
“I am interested in comparing my personal ideas with social examples to find similarity and/or differences. Since our individual mentality and manner in life is a sample of the big society we live in, huge paradoxes in our minds represent huge paradoxes in real world. So I am trying to create individual icons to express them as much as I can,also the materials and visual elements that I am using depend on my subject of interest and with them I try to achieve the best way possible to explain my vision and thoughts.”
Her hubcap artwork will be included in the upcoming international exhibition of about 150 of the artworks from the LandfillArt Collection that will tour in Europe and Asia during 2016 – 2018
