Artwork > BP INSTALLATION

It has been 5 years since the #BPoilspill in the Gulf and the animals and sea creatures there are still suffering. I made a special series of artworks in response to the spill.You can click to see a short video too.

This is an installation of 87 small canvases, one representing each day of the BP oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico. These paintings are presented as a grid grouping on a single wall and depict different fish, brown pelicans, crabs, turtles and other marine life that are suffering due to BP's negligence during the #BPoilspill.
