About this Art
The framing option for this piece of original artwork includes a 1 Inch Black Wood frame with UV-glass & ready to hang hardware.
" I drew this while doing an artist residency at Residencia Gorila in Tulum Mexico. They used it to promote their initiative called the Lionfish Project. Lionfish, a native species of the Indo-pacific, were somehow released into the Caribbean in the early 1990's. They have since multiplied and spread and are now considered an invasive species here in Mexico. Feeding on small venerable marine life they are a real and growing threat to the underwater ecosystem of the entire Caribbean. Unless their numbers are controlled through eradication they will continue to breed exponentially, causing serious damage to reefs and several species of fish.
Residencia Gorila's LIONFISH PROJECT aim is to reduce the lionfish population in the Mexican Caribbean by increasing it's consumption through audiovisual and street art, direct contact with community and viral campaigns. The goal is to transform Lionfish into the regions top cuisine.
My drawing depicts a gorila, wielding traditional Mayan weapons, hunting the Lionfish. Beneath is a spear diving women, and the sacred Mayan ruins of Tulum. ." - Aaron Glasson
