Art can be multilayered inspirational as well as intriguing at the same time, most of the time the artist make us think deeper and draw our attention towards it. No matter how much less we know about art many pieces make us gasp for a while casting a look at them and get lost for a while into the depth and find an emotional string sweeping across our hearts.
That is the reason that moved Swedish artist Andreas Häggkvist who took the opportunity to use his substantial art to raise extreme awareness for endangered species. His master-works combined with hitting captions are very powerful and you be moved to take action. At least that is what it appears to be among instagrammers.
He hopes the same and believes the message will be conveyed very well ”Just as with melodies, visual images stick with us more than just words. Using the power that art contains, there really is an opportunity for an artist to make a movement for an important cause” – Andreas says.
Let’s hope his art not only brings a smile to your face and makes you feel good, but also makes you stop and think for a moment about what is happening to our planet. Whatever he says and regarding these digital paintings with captions, the excerpts from there have been added below with pictures of endangered species awareness project.
