Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

My wall aims to express the connection between humans and nature, focusing on marine life, highlighting coral reefs. These underwater ecosystems are fundamental for maintaining the balance on nature, and despite that, they are currently endangered, and continuously threatened by human activities.

The wall reflects the symbiosis that exists between the human and the animal; shaping the narrow invisible, but not the intangible link we have with these underwater worlds. In the upper part, the Whale Shark gradually disappears since it is an endangered marine species.
