Endeavour House Mural

Endeavour House put out a call for local artists to help design a mural on its prominent, external wall facing both traffic on Canberra Avenue and the main shopping precinct of Manuka.  Like my design? You can vote for it or other submissions HERE. The 2021 Doomsday Clock sits at 100 seconds to midnight, naming climate change as an existential threat to humanity. Former UN Climate Change Convention Chief Christiana Figueres states ‘This is the decade and we are the generation’. The five panels of my mural illustrate how the processes leading to resource depleted, climate ravaged futures are inexorably in motion, disregarding devastating toxic impacts on the ecosystems vital to sustaining all life on Earth. We are out of time. We must unite, rise up and stand strong to fight for our future. In Greta Thunberg’s words – RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW.
