“HOW BLUE IS MY OCEAN” depicts the serious impact of global warming and the gradual disappearance of coral reefs. This set of acrylic on canvas will show the importance of their preservation, the delicateness of our environment, and the significance of this to the world.
As an avid environmentalist, the Self taught Indian artist Bipasha Sen Guptha was highly influenced by the effects of Global Warming and the rapid disappearance of the Coral Reefs. During her visit to the Maldives & the Andaman Islands, she realized how important it was for humankind to preserve nature.
“Coral reefs are probably the most complex ecosystems on the planet. The damage being caused to reefs and the open ocean is one of the most serious effects of global warming. The jewels under the ocean are fast disappearing and the treasure chest might be very soon empty,” Bipasha said.
The art exhibition will continue in Malé, before it will be moved to Beach House Maldives, A Waldorf Astoria resort and Zitahli Resorts & Spa.
