"Few will doubt that humankind has created a planet-sized problem for itself.
No one wished it so, but we are the first species to become a geophysical force,
altering Earth's climate, a role previously reserved for tectonics, sun flares, and glacial cycles."
E. O. Wilson, 1998. Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge
p. 277-278

Why not use our art for good?

Sunday 13 August 2017.

Graffiti artists Phibs(a.k.a. Tim De Haan)
and George Rose show and tell in Newtown, Sydney.

TRANSCRIPT

Phibs:

I think I wanted to be a marine biologist once upon a time so I'd already learned my fish, but I didn't end up with very good grades so I ended up drawing them and painting them instead. So I think it was more we saw a documentary that really go us thinking and I'd been looking to do more stuff that's got messages in them anyway. It's a natural progression with the work that I do. Traditional graffiti's more egotistical. It's all 'Look at me, Look at me' sort of stuff, so this is sort of a different direction. It's nice to be challenged, whether it's working with someone different or trying to put your heads together so that might get people thinking as well. We've got this platform to get people interested. People are interested in this sort of stuff so if we can also spread a message as well, why not use our power for good.

Lisa:

That's great. I'll leave you in your zone.

Phibs:

Nice one. Have a good bike ride.

George:

A lot of people were saying, 'Are you going to put some colour in there?' 'No! This is what we're doing to the environment, so no! We'll leave it like this. It's a pretty direct [message]'.
