Monkey Magic Eco Art Raises Awareness of Environmental Issues in the Peruvian Amazon

Comments Off on Monkey Magic Eco Art Raises Awareness of Environmental Issues in the Peruvian Amazon

Peru’s region of Madre de Dios is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth–but the lush Amazonian area is under serious threat by deforestation and illegal gold mining. Although Peru is home to the second-largest amount of rainforest in the world, the rise of gold mining has devastated nearly 370,000 acres of the country’s Amazon . To raise awareness of these environmental issues and spark dialogue on how best to balance resource conservation with the economic needs of the community, the nonprofit Eco Art Installations created inspiring eco art from locally sourced leaves, flowers, seeds, and trash. The artists involved include Sue, an orphaned howler monkey; Gypsy Voyager’s Char Evans, Christine Ashley Guckert, and Anthony Zaccone; and KamranJon’s Kamran Pakseresht. Prints and photos of the artwork can be purchased at Saatchi Art . + Eco Art Installations The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Unlike Mary Shelley’s monstrous fictional creation, the pumpkins that bear his face are real and available to add to your Halloween decor this year.
