Polar Bear Lost …

Feb 25

Here is ‘Ursus Maritimus Morocco’ , my first piece for the year.

Ursus Maritimus is the scientific name for a polar bear; the polar bear therefore is also the Maritime Bear as it spends a great percentage of its life in the ocean.  Today the polar bear is an animal symbolic of climate change and habitat loss. My bear is displaced; he roams the rocky desert landscape of Morocco in North Africa.

(I spent last December in Morocco and it is a beautiful and strange place – really inspired by the colours – Chefchaouen painting in the works yes yes.)
