STATEMENT

Six coffee paintings and two tea paintings completed on 100% recycled paper, with the use of as little as 30ml of coffee and one reused tea bag.

The wildlife you see in my paintings are endangered species, balancing on the brink of extinction because of you and me. To place blame is simple. To lose faith in humanity is easy but, does it solve anything at all?

I believe not. This is why I have invited people to adopt an animal in an exchange for a painting. It was an invitation with the simple intention to find even small indications of proof that change is possible, that people care and that not all faith in humanity is lost.

Therefore, I have made it this project’s purpose, not only to show that positive things can be achieved with very little, but also that there is good in people, a virtue to be acknowledged, appreciated and celebrated.
