Description

In this colorful and complex mural, an adult whale and baby whale are trapped in a gigantic water bottle. Curious onlookers take photos with their phones while uniformed officials appear to control the crowd. Meanwhile, a scientist in a white lab coat speaks to one of several industrial workers clad in construction helmets near a large pipeline coming from the bottle's spout. The public and industry workers are separated by a giant set of plastic can rings stretched across a small stream. Other than the stream, all water in this arid landscape is contained in the enormous bottle. The artist explained in his Instagram post that the work addresses "the rate of excessive consumption of natural resources and pollution with waste, specifically water as one of the most precious goods. A possible future scenario if we do not begin to correctly manage our passage through the planet. We must be able to guarantee the supply of water to future generations."
