Virgin Breaker

Description:
Virgin Breaker / Nature Art image / 2017 portrays the act and actions of humans which have polluted and destroyed the untouchable natural beauty of the ocean or the coast. The work highlights various environmental hazards cause by open toileting along the coast, damping of plastic waste materials, sand winning and more. The artist sees all those activities as a break of virginity of the coast. We prolong life when we treat our natural environment well. The Virgin coast site could have been a very powerful tourist site for the country if preserved and maintained well. The nature art project was to warn people, to stop breaking the virginity of our virgin natural sites. If given the opportunity, the artist who is a painter, art educationist, performer and sculptor will use his skills to dialogue with the public by firstly, doing a series of performing to create awareness of the danger in destroying the ocean. Secondly, the artist will produce paintings and possibly exhibit in the public to educated them on the need to preserve the ocean and life. Thirdly, the artist will produce sculpture with waste materials that find their way into the ocean.
