The Barrel Collection
Efi Mashiah highlights the current oil crisis through his use of recycled branded oil barrels and highlights the fact the world has acted as a field of desire, aspiration, and seduction. This is arguably also true of the wealth offered by oil fields.
The new collection has been launched at a time when the oil industry has crashed to an 18-year low, as demand has suffered an unprecedented drop. The collapse in demand for oil is a direct result of the social distancing restrictions implemented by governments around the world.
Many commenters note the ongoing oil price war is exacerbating the issues within the oil market. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia and Russia are flooding the world with excess oil at precisely the time when the opposite approach is required.
