Deforestation | Drawing UnitedFrom 2001 to 2012, deforestation rates dropped 40 percent in the amazon, correlating to a 30 percent lower particulate emissions rate.

Researchers calculated this deforestation reduction resulted in 1,700 fewer deaths per year due to particulate-caused cardiopulmonary disease and lung cancer (source).

As well as being a vital asset to our health, trees plays a huge part in preventing the devastating effects of climate change, regulating rainfall and climate patterns, reducing Co2 and cleaning our air.

The facts



£60 is what Lucy’s awesome original artwork will cost you but above all what will be given to his chosen charity – ??.

Here is what Lucy has to say about it all –

“In my work, I try to raise awareness on environmental issues such as air/ocean pollution and deforestation along with health concerns such as lung cancer.

The image of the tree is very present in my art as it symbolises for me our deeply rooted connection to nature as well as our negative impact on nature.

I am interested in seeing patterns across the issues that I touch upon. This is why I deform and transform the figure of the tree by representing it under different forms :  it is either depicted with a rib cage instead of a tree trunk, linked with an umbilical cord to a newborn child or its roots growing octopus tentacles.”
