IMAGINE THERE IS NO ANIMAL CRUELTY
There is No Planet B
"I think of my glitch art on rhinoceros as a vessel to depicts the voices of many cries in the wilderness. The animals that are being cruelly poached over for obscure and feeble reasons ignited this artwork. I am unsettled by the smell of raw acid inhaled in to the lungs, the scent of iron that fester across the field. I am agonised by the demands to wound and cut off rhino horns without mercy and remorse, horns that are mistaken for ridiculous status symbol of wealthy individuals and that holds no scientific medical benefits . As the graph of deaths grew each year, soullessness of men becomes vivid. More of us should be aware of this and more importantly, we should be aware that there is no planet B."
