6 artists who use their talent to help preserve the ocean

On June 8, the world celebrated Ocean Day, and many artists dedicated various events to this holiday to draw attention to the problem of ocean conservation. Someone focuses on the beauty of the flora and fauna of the ocean, someone focuses on the pollution of its plastic and oil.

Portuguese artist Vanessa Barragao manually creates huge rugs with a nautical theme. To do this, Vanessa uses several techniques at once – and crocheting, and knitting, and felting, and tufting, and embroidery. Thus, from pieces of fabric and thread, she creates whole tapestries that look like the bottom of the ocean, especially coral reefs.
“Coral reefs are an integral, complex organism, the heart of the ocean, in which every organism depends on another,” Vanessa says.

Frenchwoman Aude Bourgine creates sculptures of coral from threads and beads, thus emphasizing the fragility of these creations. “Unless we urgently change our attitude towards the environment, life in the oceans will die out by 2050,” says Aude. “Their disappearance will be a real catastrophe at all levels – environmental, climate and human too.”

Courtney Mattison creates ceramic sculptures to “protect our blue planet.” Her series of works entitled “Our Changing Seas” explores the diversity of coral reefs and shows how many of them die. Her work “Merging” looks like a huge spiral, the center of which is still vibrant and colored, and the edges are already colorless, which symbolizes the gradual destruction of reefs.

Sydney-based artist Marie Antuanelle creates large-scale paintings of beaches and the ocean, intentionally removing traces of human presence. Thus, it shows how beautiful nature is, if you take care of it properly.

British illustrator Mat Miller (Mat Miller) created a work called “Equilibrium”, which clearly shows the fragility of the ecosystem. The mat paints with watercolors and acrylics, painting subtle details of vibrant underwater life. “If you remove at least one element from the picture, the integrity of the picture will be lost. It is exactly the same in real life, ”Mat explains his idea.

French artist Mademoiselle Ipollite (Mlle Hipolyte) creates voluminous bright sculptures. It’s not easy to guess that all these complex shapes are actually made of colored paper. Choosing such material, the artist wanted to show the fragility of underwater life.
