The Book of the Earth

My artwork describes the past of our planet in the first chapters, present in the middle of the book, and future in the last chapters, which will depend on man and his attitude. Once upon a time, without global warming and modern human inventions, the Earth was a better place to live. Man wanted to improve and change nature; he wanted to make it more useful and functional using natural sources, which created a new environment. Man changed the natural order, creating pollution that may jeopardize all living creatures. The giant icebergs are melting, sea levels are rising, corals are dying, animals are being driven to extinction, and some fascinating lands will not exist in 50 years. I'm concerned about climate change and the effect on our planet. Even more, I'm concerned about the careless attitude of people who don't realize the future of our beautiful planet will depend on our decisions.
