Shades acknowledges what might be considered a unique situation, given his commercial success in the urban art: “I’m blessed. I’m an artist. People are paying me for what I do with a God-given talent. So there’s no problem with me giving back,” the graffiti artist said, chuckling. “Any child that gets to see anyone of success doing art … is awesome. Kids love that.”

To make recycled nylon from old fishing nets, EcoAlf works with organizations in Asia and Spain that collect ocean rubbish. “There’s a whole process of collecting and cleaning, which is difficult as [the nets] come mixed with a lot of other materials. Once they have been cleaned and cut, they are processed to create yarn,” says Múgica.
