The sea eats the land at last. ( inspired by Kofi Awoonor’s poem.)


This painting aims to illustrate deep sea life as an intricate and lively experience, rather than limiting itself to the imagery of darkness. I was inspired by Kofi Awoonor’s poem The Sea eats the land at home to highlight human’s dependency on the ocean and the repercussions if we don’t take care of it. My heart goes out to those who are affected by floods and sand corrosion to the large-scale effects of climate change. I hope my vibrant use of colour could conjure feelings of hope and warmth in the souls of viewers, especially as I was inspired by the dream worlds painted by Marc Chagall. I want to educate people about the importance of deep sea marine animals, especially how they sustain whole ecosystems like whales and jellyfishes.
