Aprés Moi, Le Déluge (2014)

Watercolour on paper.
200 x 180 cm approx. (two sheets of paper, unframed)
Private Collection.

Commissioned by Greenpeace UK, the painting shows a polar bear and her cub climbing to safety over melting ice. The illustration was made into a 20m tall banner to be hung from London’s Shard building (the building’s backdrop providing the illusion of ice) to raise awareness of climate change issues. This banner was never hung after the climbers failed to reach their target, although the unsuccessful action was the most watched Greenpeace televised protest of recent years.
