Agape Charmani for Art-Sheep
Post-apocalyptic, allegorical and commenting, Martin Wittfooth’s paintings are a powerful reminder of how the future of this world does not look very prominent. Focusing on the human existence, even though he doesn’t depict any human, Wittfooth explores how our intervention have ruined and will continue to ruin our planet.
Wittfooth’s world is a futuristic dystopia, with animals ruling the planet and following the life we once had. The Brooklyn-based painter uses these beautiful subjects to highlight the decay and despair of a world where nothing is balanced and natural anymore. Instead of living in their natural environment, these animals are becoming a haunting reminder of the humankind’s mistakes, with the artist commenting on the long-awaited recognition and acceptance of climate change, and how it does affect every living creature on this planet.
