"Art For Nature" 2021 Mural

 

gouache paint on glass

"Art for Nature" is an annual event at Cafe Zarah in Beijing, China, that attempts to raise awareness about environmental protection and a sustainable lifestyle. The event invites local vendors, local and international social enterprises, artisans and artists for a day-long celebration. 

This was my third year painting a window mural for this event. This year I collaborated with local artist, Gong Gong, on the large front window of the cafe which measured approximately 4.5 metres wide and 3 metres tall. After some discussion, we decided to go with a forest exploration theme. Some of the concept sketches can be found below.
