It would appear that Erviti, a studio artist from Bristol, is really enjoying her street art work, and barely a month goes by without one of her imaginative and creative studies appearing in some spot or other. This time she showed up in the Three Pigs back yard with this vase of lilies.
Erviti’s message next to the beautiful vase and flowers is loud and clear:
The climate crisis is here, plz panic, act now, thanks.
Sentiments I applaud. We must all redouble our efforts to act now. It is interesting to watch Sunak and Truss both campaign against the green agenda, one dropping the green levy on energy bills (as if it were the problem causing higher prices), and the other wanting to delay the UK’s target of net zero by ten years. What a couple of insufferable muppets.
You will be seeing a lot of work by John D’oh on Natural Adventures over the coming weeks, for which I make no apology. I love his stencils and the contemporary commentary accompanying them that give us a sense of time and place, important for chronicling our political and societal landscape.
This piece in Burnham-on-Sea was painted a little while back, but seems so very timely, and the message is clear, it is just such a shame that we need reminding. Greta, behind the mask, has been instrumental in galvanising the popular discourse on climate change and I’m sure she will not stop now. If anything the hard work of putting pressure on governments, and holding them to account, begins now.
