Cardumen de loros

Pepillo Salcedo, Domican Republic

Art can be a great channel to transmit environment conservation values and raise conscience about the importance of preserving the natural heritage.

This project is carried out over 52 fishermen boats, currently anchored in the mangrove of Manzanillo bay, in the province of Montecristi, in the Dominican Republic.

It is a landscape work that changes the appearance of the mangrove. Through the color, the boats are turned into another species in the ecosystem.
