ABOUT

Poignant and direct, Aldikhaiiry's work offers a distinct perspective on social, political and environmental issues, including human rights and the effects of social media. His comprehension of historical context, coupled with a command of graphic design, color and composition, lends itself to the creation of compelling narratives about the great challenges humanity faces.

 

Aldikhaiiry continues to be engaged through political visual works that render visible the truths about our changing environment. His most recent series and the focus of the exhibition eARTh matters explores climate change and engages with our current production systems that contribute to it. The paintings represent visually stunning interpretations of subjects including the ozone layer, tsunamis, deforestation and melting glaciers, while also speaking to the benefits of alternative energy and to the beauty of our natural world.

 

Whether the long-term, significant changes in our environment happen naturally or in response to human activities, the evidence for rapid climate change is compelling and art can make a difference in the way we, as a global community, respond to it.
