Have you had a chance to check out Biodiversity Barbados’ Virtual Art Exhibition?

The Ministry of Environment is delighted to once again be working with artists in Barbados to highlight biodiversity and the environment on International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB).  IDB was celebrated on Sunday May 22nd under the theme is ‘Building a Shared Future for All Life’ with the Ministry’s second annual Virtual Art Exhibition.  This year’s Art Exhibit features 30 pieces from different local artists, highlighting the theme of ‘Nature’, and throughout the months of May and June, Biodiversity Barbados will be highlighting the contributing artists and their art.

Today we look at an acrylic painting by Mario Holder (@mario.holder_art) entitled ‘Grounded’. In this piece, Mario captures a young woman encircled by lush vegetation taking a breath and relaxing. It is so easy to feel overwhelmed by our chaotic day to day lives. Sometimes we just need a moment to ground ourselves in a quiet, cool space.

Tune in again tomorrow for our next highlighted artist and art combo.
