Handle With Care

we hold
in our own hands
EARTH and OCEAN

do we hold them as carefully as our wallets?

marrz capanang - water nymph at artivism 2.0 Iloilo City

This stunning painting by Ilonggo artist Marrz Capanang was created during Artivism 2.0 (Iloilo City, Philippines) earlier this month. Artivism is a collective of street art and was painted in unison on the concrete walls surrounding a school and other public buildings. It’s a beautiful way of creating a conversation about the way we treat our oceans, and a trigger for self-reflection and contemplation.

Ocean and Earth, you and me.
