It's a Matter of Time

With resemblance of a card, this surreal piece for Sea Walls Australia highlights the limited amount of time left before life in our reefs and oceans disappear for good.

My artwork hopes to give a sense of urgency and raise awareness of the damage and impact we are having on our reefs and oceans. It's only a matter of time before irreversible damage is done and a whole ecosystem could be potentially be wiped out if not severely affected. It is up to all of us to protect and care for the world around us by making some fundamental changes to the way we think and live.
Overfishing, pollution (especially plastic) and a rise in ocean temperatures are just some of the leading key factors affecting our oceans today. The thoughtless impact we have on our oceans will inevitably effect us all in the long run. Everything is connected including us. The coral trout is also present in the mural. A stunningly beautiful fish that is also at risk of being overfished.
