30% of Koalas Killed in Australian NSW Mid-North Coast Fires
Whatever the weather, artists for centuries have been inspired to make art in response to it. Art, fashion, and photography throughout history, have revolutionised the way we think about politics, environmental/social issues, culture and even art itself. In the 21st century we are bombarded, through the media, by a constant stream of news, flipping from the personal to the global in seconds. This information often presents us with serious issues surrounding the weather and environment and this is what L3 YR1 have responded to.
I have created a painting that represents the wildfires that occurred in Australia in 2019. I wanted to create a piece that spreads awareness about the tragedy and about global warming. I chose to focus on presenting a koala because I thought audiences would pay closer attention to animals.
