Tran Nguyen Miranda & Caliban Art Print PangeaSeed Foundation Release

PangeaSeed Foundation is pleased to announce the latest print release in their 2020 print project, "In Peril: A Visual Story of Our Ocean's Greatest Challenges". Featuring original artwork by supporting ARTivist Tran Nguyen (USA), this limited art print edition highlights the importance of ocean stewardship and human connection to the marine environment.

Social and environmental justice are inextricably linked and not separate silos but by and large, the environmental movement has failed Black, Indigenous + POC communities. Historically, and presently, it has been fraught with privilege and it is high time for environmentalists to stand in solidarity and action with BIPOC. Without protecting the most vulnerable and bringing those voices to the table and elevating them, we will never be able to truly protect our home planet. Systems of oppression and environmental racism must be dismantled.

Artist Statement:
"This the painting was originally created as a book cover. It depicts the two characters, Miranda and Caliban, from Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and their life on a remote island, which is symbolized by the seagulls.

I often paint figures enveloped by nature such as birds. I'm interested in the relationship between the two and how they co-exist with one another on the picture plane. The painting parallels our relationship with the environment as well as its impact on it, particularly on sea life. Gulls are scavengers that keep insects and other prey species population down and are essential in dispersing pollen for vegetation growth. Every species play an important role in maintaining their ecosystem and our interference disrupts this rhythm, whether it's due to our contribution to coastal pollution or habitat destruction. If everyone took a step back and minimized their involvement in these disturbances, we can co-exist together on a more sustainable and worthwhile picture plane." - Tran Nguyen
