It’s art. And it’s going to melt.
Hawaiian artist Sean Yuro, aka Hula, used a field of icebergs in Iceland as the canvas for his latest mural, the results of which are both stunning and foreboding. The project is titled, A’o ‘Ana, which translates to “the warning,” and Yuro intended his melting painted ladies to stand as a metaphor for climate change. Which they do. And how!
Pretty? You bet it is! But it’s not going to last, and it’s all our fault.
“I hope they ignite a sense of urgency, as they represent the millions of people in need of our help who are already being affected from the rising sea levels of Climate Change,” Yuro says on his website.
The ephemerality of the ice paintings, which Yuro predicts will only last a few weeks, make the feeling you get when your epic Snapchat cooking video disappears from your story feel puny in comparison.
We’re just glad they took these awesome pictures. See the full gallery at byhula.com.
