He Transforms Icebergs Into Floating Art Galleries. The Photos Are Beautifully Surreal.

Hula (Sean Yoro), a New York-based painter from Hawaii, fuses street and fine art once again through his most recent project: A'o 'Ana II (The Warning). In this project, Hula uses the sides of icebergs as a canvas to highlight the problem of global warming. Hula shared about the experience on his Instagram:

I witnessed the extreme melting rate first hand as the sound of ice cracking was a constant background noise... Within a few weeks, these murals will be gone, but for those who find them, I hope they ignite a sense of urgency, as they represent the millions of people in need of our help who are already being affected from the rising sea levels of Climate Change.

Though we hear a lot about global warming, very few of us can truly feel the weight of its effects. Hula's environmental art goes beyond the realm of that which is visually appealing; it demands our attention by bringing us closer to the things, the realities, that can help us spark change.
