We ART for NATURE
The aim of Worldrise Walls is to bring the wonders of the sea in the city , but also its problems, highlighting that everyone can be part of the solution. Street art is the system use to do it. In order to do so, we have decided to use street art. (through the use of street art/ using street art).
We ART for Nature
because our projects have the goal of (re)connecting people and nature, especially in the urban context. Cities are the place where the majority of people are but, at the same time, are the places where nature is almost absent.
Climate change, pollution and loss of biodiversity are some of the themes that street art can transform into graphic language.
A trail in the urban sea, food for thoughts to understand that making the difference is a daily act. This mural is made with Airlite, a natural painting which both leaves clearer thoughts and cleaner air.
Federico Massa aka “Iena Cruz”, was born Milan, but he is currently living in New York. Through his murals that represent climate change, pollution risks and the problem of the animal extinctions, he has established his name at an international level.
Currently human beings are over-exploiting the resources of our planet, starting in this way a new geological era: the Anthropocene.
Iena Cruz was inspired by this word to develope the name of his masterpiece named “AnthropOcean”. The masterpiece wants to make people reflect about the scars that humans are leaving at the bottom and at the surface of the Ocean.
The piece of art
In the middle of the mural, there is an oil drilling platform that extracts the black gold to make a plastic bottle to symbolize the consumerist choice that we make everyday. In this way the entire marine system is bottled with the horizon of an increasingly uncertain and blurred future perspective.
