A word from the artist :

“The inspiration of this work comes from the common masks in people’s daily life under the background of the epidemic. Masks can not only prevent the spread of viruses, but also have an important role in purifying the air. With the continuous advancement of modernization around the world, air pollution is becoming more and more serious. And the forest, which itself can purify the air, also needs the protection of masks because it can’t bear it. The theme of the whole work is to call on people to protect the environment, protect forests, and stop air pollution from worsening.”


About the IDEARTS

Art can be defined in a thousand different manners. In today’s world, it is increasingly regarded as a way to learn and share about sustainability and green technologies; as a lever to raise awareness on climate change and throw light on workarounds for global warming; as a means to better understand the problematics of our times and the prospects for our future.

For its very first edition, Vadviam’s IDEARTS programme has invited Architecture and Landscape Architecture students from renowned Shanghai Jiao Tong School of Design to create artworks intended to illustrate environmental issues and offer solutions for global sustainability.
