Artist statement: 
"Mangroves are home to some of the most diverse ecosystems in existence. Every inch of them teeming with diversified life, from fish to birds, reptiles to big cats. Mangroves are truly magical. They are enchanting and an integral part of mitigating climate change. Unfortunately, every year more and more are disappearing due to coastal development.

In this painting, I chose to use the flying Egrets to represent moving upwards on onwards from our current climate situation, and their glow represents the importance of doing so. Having them move from left to right, mirroring the smoke and smog of the city is implying that this is the correct way to go. I have the mangrove tiger moving from right to left to represent their population moving in the wrong direction. I chose to make the smoke from the city imitate the veiny tangles of branches and vines of the Mangrove forests. The colored editions of this piece are meant to show the magic that the Mangroves possess, while the black and white versions are meant to represent the somber and heavy mood of what is actually taking place, which is the steady decline of these magical water forests due to coastal development." - McMonster
