Perspective by Jesse Brass

An artist creates large-scale paintings that document the haunting effects of climate change. Be inspired at 2:22…

Brooklyn-based artist Zaria Forman creates hyper-realistic paintings of melting glaciers and icebergs, floating in icy beautiful waters.

She led an Arctic expedition to the north west coast of Greenland purposely with the aim of creating art inspired by the dramatic geography. Her mother originally came up with the idea, but passed away before Zaria could see it through.

“I promised to carry out her final journey,” Zaria said. “In Greenland, I scattered her ashes amongst crackling ice diamonds, on the towering peak of one of earth’s oldest stones and under the green glow of northern lights.”

Her mother is is now a part of the landscape she loved so much.

Ultimately, Zaria hopes her paintings will bring awareness and urgency to the crisis of climate change.
