Sea Shepherd Conservation S

Door Aurora, 2012

40cm x 50cm

This a SeaShepherd Hero. He protects the whales and dolphins. The symbols above his head are their flag, an old Pirate's flag, somewhat altered; the bones have been turned into a staff and trident, as symbols of protection of the ocean. He looks anguished because he sees and feels the pain of the slaughtered whales and dolphins, it hurts him to his core. I was inspired by Erwin Vermeulen.

Over Aurora

My artist name is Aurora after the Goddess of Light, the Bringer of Dawn after the dark night of the soul. I’m an Amsterdam-based artist, all my works are oil paintings on canvas as I paint images in the tradition of magical realism with loads of symbolism and using the traditional oil painting techniques of the old Dutch masters.
