An artist from Nis, Danica Maksimovic, made a mosaic with motifs of the city, unique in that it is made of electronic waste and on a base of recycled plastic.
The mosaic measures 120 by 80 centimeters and contains some of the most recognizable historical monuments of Nis, such as the Fortress, Ćele-kula and Čegra, as well as portraits of Emperor Constantine the Great, Stevan Sindjelić and Villa Naisa.
Maksimović, who made a mosaic of Nikola Tesla before this mosaic, also from electronic waste and recycled plastic, told the Beta agency that she found the idea to make a mosaic of electronic components in low awareness of ecology in our country.
“I had some components at home that I wanted to give, I called recycling, of course they didn’t want to take it because it’s small, and I didn’t want to just throw them away. Then I decided to make something out of it and encourage people to think about preserving the environment, “said Maksimović.
According to her, it took her four months to make a mosaic with motifs of the city of Nis.
“I was looking for it to be ‘green art’, to be all ecological and to meet the ecological standards for painting to the maximum. I melted the recycled plastic for the base, and in the end the work was poured in epoxy resin “, said Maksimović.
She added that the mosaic of Nikola Tesla is in her apartment for now, while the mosaic with the motifs of Nis was bought by a software company and exhibited in its premises.
Maksimović moved from Gračanica to Niš at the age of 15 and graduated from the Art High School and the Faculty of Arts in that city.
He has been on the records of the National Employment Service for five years, but he posts his pictures and receives orders through social networks.
