Hyper-Realistic Finger Drawings of the Arctic Will Make You Do a Double-Take for Climate Awareness
Think these images of the Arctic are photographs? Think again. Environmentally conscious artist Zaria Forman actually creates these photo-realistic pastel illustrations of glaciers and icy oceans to raise awareness about climate change.
Using just her fingers as implements to draw and color, Forman achieves intense detail on giant canvases. (Many of the drawings span whole walls.) Her inspiration as well as her concern for the environment come from childhood travels with her photographer mother to many of the world’s more remote places.
