As we know, the Earth is being heavily polluted every day. With all this waste in the ocean, sea and land animals will be affected and eventually endangered. My art piece depicts two sides of the effect of waste: one part where we humans produce waste and the other where the innocent animals are affected due to our polluting actions. The trash and the cans in my picture depict the pollution that exists in the sea. I purposely used different colors for the air to signify the deterioration of our air quality. I made it so that the birds in my painting are in terror and are in search of fresher, cleaner air, which naturally does not exist in our environment anymore due to our arrogant needs. I want people to see my artwork and understand the damage that we are continuously producing. Although we may not notice the difference, the plants and animals do.
