Pollution is one of the major social issues in the world. Even though people know that pollution affects our economy, people are not fully aware and warned how much harm it will bring to our society. Marine debris and plastic pollution harms our daily lives, but especially our environment. Our minor habits such as littering cause pollution to the ocean. In my painting, I want to portray that trashes and debris overcome humans due to the large amounts, which will eventually come together and shape into the form of a human’s body. The man is wearing a gas mask, because I wanted to portray that marine pollution is harmful and fatal to our environment. People should be more aware and know the consequences that could occur if marine pollution continues. All of us should start to be aware and make small changes to make our world better and cleaner.
