“ I come to you with this series to share my deep concern about how the whole world that we know is changing very quickly so deeply than the living things that usually inhabited it are not longer exist and others are about to disappear as well. Although this is just my personal warning to the rest of people, I want to shout them at the top of my lungs, THIS PLANET, OUR PLANET IS IN DANGER AND US AS A SPECIE WILL NOT SURVIVE WITHOUT IT. ”

I have been so lucky to travel and live throughout the world, from Greenland to Antarctica and from Asia to America. It has been an exciting time to feel the profound cultural differences between people living in different places around the world, but all of them have one characteristic that identify them as a specie, all of them seem do not like the planet earth and subsequently every living thing inhabited it. Just because of that I would understand why many of them are killing each and every living thing for their own benefit.

This whole series lay on the idea that originally our planet is like a gorgeous landscape painted on a classic canvas, always in danger to be damaged. It seems to be created to last forever, nevertheless once destruction is on going, it is time to protect the whole canvas but it has no time to do it. Therefore the last solution would be to protect just a piece of the canvas or your own piece of planet, if you dare!
