New Mural In Hanbury Street, London from Jim Vision

DSC03496

This year Jim Vision has painted numerous murals. This most recent and huge artwork is located on the side of the Banglatown Cash and Carry, off Hanbury street in the heart of the east end.  Though this is a personally led project Jim was advised by the shopkeeper that a piece that was somehow relevant to the local community would be gratefully received. And positively it’s been a situation where both an artist’s endeavour and the wishes of a wall owner coincide.

So it is that this new work, a piece highlighting man’s destruction of the natural environment, deforestation to make way for mass monoculture crops, is a sobering reminder that we must not forget our connection with the earth.  The piece also features a holi man at it’s centre dividing the beauty of the natural world on the left with the destruction and fire ripping through jungles and rainforest to the right.

As city dwellers we have to survive in this modern, corporate, profit-led world, but it is ever more important for us to strive to protect natural habitats, use more environmentally friendly power sources, lower the consumption of natural resources and to question the ethos and operations behind brands and corporations that want us to buy their products.

Is it too late for the human race to realise it’s full potential? Have profit, money and business overtaken the real human connection, between ourselves, the planet and nature?

Question also why the mainstream media has often portrayed ‘hippies’ as these odd people that seem to care about the earth more than buying new things and being a part of modern culture, and that this should be deemed as ‘strange’ or alien. It helps if your population are made to feel less caring for animals, forests and the natural world. But if you ask anyone if they would like to purchase a product that is made from resources gained through burning natural ancient jungle to make way for rubber plantations and palm oil products and that animals and people were displaced, hurt or destroyed because of this, the answer would be a resounding NO.

It’s time for the masses to wake up and be more responsible.

New Year, New Walls.

Despite the impending cold snap (actual winter really?!) looming and the inclement weather we’ve been experiencing many artists and painters have been out creating new works in the start of 2016. I for one love to see walls getting a spring clean and new pieces popping up all over, a few of which you can see in this post.
