parkviewartsaction photos download#ArtistinAction 💁🏻‍♂️💁🏻💙🦈 The painting represents the image of a shark swimming in the blue Ocean: above the Ocean, in the blue sky, a human shadow is reflected: at a closer look, we actually realize that it is the shadow of a shark. Through a simple and direct expressive language, young artist Alister Wong wants to convey the message that for sharks, humans are like their own shadow: sharks and humans are inseparable. However, what is sad is that sharks and their shadows (humans) they seem to proceed towards different directions getting further away from each other. This tragic ending is not openly represented, it is just suggested. The artist, through this simple and genuine concept, hopes to make the viewers re- think their attitude and behaviour. #TheShadow

parkviewartsaction photos download“This is a serious environmental issue that affects us all. Shark preservation is undoubtedly critical. Declining shark numbers pose a fundamental threat to the health of the world’s oceans.
