Nature and Art

By Stephanie Jin, 2019-07-02

For me, art is not only about pretty images, but is also actively evocative of deeper meanings. In this regard, I made these paintings about environmental protection. I hope my paintings can focus people’s attention on the necessity of protecting mother nature.

“Restricted Ocean”

This image is about how sea animals’ lives are restricted by human devices and pollution. I believe most people can recognize the famous character in the drawing, Pinocchio, and the famous scene where Pinocchio accidentally ended up in the whale’s stomach. However, this time he’s getting in the whale’s stomach along with a large amount of trash and human waste.

It is very difficult to call people’s attention to the need for environmental protection all by myself. However, I believe as more and more artists work together towards the same goal, more people will pay attention to this crisis. I will continue to explore and improve as an artist to further help gather attention and solve such problems.
