Ecological Art or “Eco Art”
is a contemporary form of environmental art created by artists who are concerned about local and global environmental situations.
Ecological Art is an artistic practice or discipline proposing paradigms sustainable with the lifeforms and resources of our planet.
Eco Art creates awareness, stimulates dialogue, changes human behaviour towards other species, and encourages the long-term respect for the natural systems we coexist with.
The “After The Flood” exhibition is produced with ECO-friendly, and sustainably-harvested pigments from around the world.
They contain no added fillers, additives, preservatives, stabilisers, or heavy metals. Mixed with refined walnut oil pairs perfectly to make a smooth, rich, luxurious oil paint.
All paintings are painted on organic linen canvases.
Flax, the plant from which linen is made is resilient and can grow in poor soil, using far less water in its consumption than cotton.
Eco Gesso is used to smooth the surface of canvases. It is ECO - friendly, non- toxic, and vegan gesso, made with French marble dust, limestone powder, titanium dioxide pigment and plant- based binders.
As a final touch on the finished paintings is natural, non- toxic natural varnish, made with a proprietary blend of plant- based, archival ingredients using time- tested recipes from the Renaissance.
All the future works by Dante are expected to achieve the highest form of Eco Art as possible.
