Miha Artnak, the artist behind the brilliant Layers series, has recently finished his newest piece of street art entitiled The Rise of The Fall. Found inf Slovenia, in this piece Artnak covered the branches of a tree with a number of plastic bags that nearly obscure it when observed from a distance. Much like his other work featuring the medium of plastic bags, The Plastic Bag Monster, Artnak is hoping to make a statement and raise awareness about humankind's waste and rampant consumerism. By covering the tree, this can be interpreted to mean that if something isn't done to help reverse this trend, our garbage may soon overtake nature.
