Raising awareness for Amazon forest wildifires through his art

“I did not set out to paint about the Amazon fires and certainly did not choose it as a topic, I started painting and it materialised into the painting you see.

I had been watching news reports on the fires for a few days before. When I start painting my sub-conscience takes over and I try not to think to much about what I am including. When I stepped back and looked at what was on the canvas I can piece together the narrative.”

Most fires observed in the region are caused by humans. Many are set in previously cleared lands in order to quickly remove any excess vegetation that has popped up. Others are set in land that is still in the process of being cleared, in order to make more open land for crops or cattle. (Source: National Geographic)

Logging companies are cutting down some of the most endangered forests on the planet to make wood and paper products such as office paper or toilet paper.

You can help reduce the pressure on our remaining forests by taking simple steps to reduce your own wood and paper use. For example, use both sides of each piece of paper, use your own cloth bags at the grocery store, use cloth napkins and towels, and avoid disposable paper plates and cups. (Source: Adventure Life)
