We are stocked to open Art Sprouts Gallery doors to you on the World Oceans Day. We are dedicating this event to protecting the world's oceans. Did you know that RESTORING THE OCEAN COULD FEED 1 BILLION PEOPLE A HEALTHY SEAFOOD MEAL EVERY DAY? To support the cause, we will donate 50% of the event sales to the #Oceana, an organization working exclusively to protect and restore the oceans on a global scale. We are also partnering with#RiverSeaChocolates, a local chocolatier who uses sail transport as a viable emission-free option to bring cacao beans, to design the World Oceans chocolate bar.
About the artist: Lukian Shelehoff-Zirbes is a six-year-young artist, who uses his art to support his passion for the great outdoors. With his most recent art campaign, he is venturing to elevate awareness of the problem of overfishing and pollution of our waterways. His paintings depict ocean dwellers and tell their stories. Such as the painting“Seal-nation", a work that tells a story of a seal who didn’t like the left-over pizza that was being dumped into the ocean by the garbage trucks, so the seal called upon his neighbors to clean up the mess.
