A word from the artist :
“The background of this work is established in the era of the development of heavy industry. Many lands were requisitioned to build chemical plants and factories. Planting food is instead being dug, landfilled, and using vicious chemicals. Under the influence of sewage, smoke, pesticides, etc., the once vibrant land has become desolate, the leaves are withered, and the land is full of residual medicines. stains and dead grass, and the sky is full of thick smoke. The work is based on the pollution of the land by factories. By revealing the reality deeply affected by it, it responds to the development concept of “clear water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains”, so as to convey to the public Express the necessity of environmental protection development.
Creation process: Combining the elements in mind, in the form of comic-style flat-panel hand-painting, the overall perspective is close to the ground, and all the changes between the sky and the earth are presented.”
