This piece of the Urban Series demonstrates the fusion of human architecture & Wildlife. It is one of my artistic ways to showcase the problem of loss of habitats for the many species in the world, caused by deforestation & human expansion.
An arctic fox, elephants, a paradise bird and a human in a self portrait come together to meet in the stairways of Berlin.
The central open door with the Elephants is an etching, that I developed and printed on artistic paper at the very beginning of the process. After this, I attached the paper on a frame and I painted the whole image around the etching-door. The result is a union of two artistic techniques I love.
Mixed media with oil, etching & artist’s blood, 60 x 90 cm, 2015.
