Breathe again

Asvin Dahoo

This painting was created using digital painting techniques, which included Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom tablet. My main idea is to raise awareness about the pollution we’ve caused to our ocean, particularly the wakasio event, which had a significant impact. The major goal is to demonstrate how Mauritian people have put their lives on the line to conserve the water and coral reef. Returning to the wakasio event, where people wore masks and dove deep into the ocean to clean up oil spilled from the boat. In real life, we all wear masks to protect one another, so the mask in the picture represents protection, preservation, and hope for our coral reef.
The painting depicts both the dark and bright sides of the coin; the sad side depicts the hardship we have endured, while the sunny side depicts the hope and success we have achieved as Mauritian citizens.
