Artist Beautifully Illustrates How Nature is in All of Us
Art has a powerful way of inspiring us to see things in a whole new way, and to make connections between seemingly disparate ideas. That's the case with a series of stunning illustrations by artist Jing Zhang, titled "Nature and Us."
Jing's series was inspired by the summer of 2018 in the UK, the hottest on record for the region. And in thinking about the impacts of climate change she sought to elevate the unique relationship between nature and people. But rather than focusing on the many downsides of our changing world, Jing took a more positive and beautiful approach.
By showing elements of nature within the shapes of human organs, she highlights how inseparable we are to the world around us... and in fact how it's not only around us. We are in nature, and nature is in us, in every way possible way!
The sustainability art series covers the topics of: Forests, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Ecosystems, Water resources, and the Green Footprint. The imagery and facts combine in a way that is visually pleasing, yet thought-provoking.
Definitely a series we'll keep coming back to again and again!
