In support of Education for Nature Vietnam

The red shanked langur is one of VIetnam's endangered species. It has a few remaining habitats but commercial developments edge closer year by year. The community, nearest to me, is on the Son Tra Peninsular in Da Nang. Once this was a military reserve but now, luxury resorts are being built in the secluded coves all round its coastline.
If we don’t dare to dream, if we cannot imagine the future we want for ourselves, nothing can change. Many are saying that the Covid19 pandemic is a chance for the world to reset; to reset our hopes and dreams for the future, to stop bespoiling this beautiful plant, to halt the greed and curtail our consumerism.
These red paintings are about the things that are important to me; the things I must not lose or endanger; the things that delight and mystify, that thrill and make me feel like I am a vibrant part of this beautiful world.
