Piece Name:’Megaptera Novaengliae’
Piece Description: The original art work was done using a micro fine ink tip pen and took roughly 3 months to complete. The piece was inspired by our ever-demanding relationship that we have with the ocean and its inhabitants. It plays on the idea of ‘give and take’ and how we always seem to take more than give. The stories are symbolic and full of tongue-in-cheek anecdotes on a quite serious situation.
Piece Dimensions: 59 X 84 cm
Piece Medium: limited edition fine art print (#17of 50) on 310gsm cotton art paper.
