The day has come to see the fruits of my labour in it’s full glory. The whopping 6 meter long Rainbow Warrior artwork went up at Blenheim Grove, thanks to the guys Unboxed Homes.
“The hoarding had already become well known as a place for street artists to create amazing bits of art. Most developers would have painted over it or put pictures of smug smiling couples drinking glasses of wine but we are doing things differently and wanted to celebrate the creativity of what had been done. So, we invited five brilliant local street artists to express what home means to them – as that connects with our mission as a custom build developer to create homes that are a blank canvas that can be designed and fitted out by the people who live in them.”
Says Gus Zogolovitch CEO of Unboxed Homes.
My brief was to create a piece which focused on the Home and what it meant to me… This is what I said:
Home is important to us because it makes us feel safe and protected. We like our homes to be clean and comfortable so that we can navigate our lives more easily. This is also true for our planet. Our planet Earth is our home. If asked, people would say they wanted to live in a home that has a clean, unlimited supply of fresh water, cupboards filled with good healthy food and where they felt safe to live. Unfortunately, not everyone realises that this is becoming increasingly challenging for our Earth home. These basic rights are being taken away from us without our permission or knowledge. Plastic and toxic chemicals are seeping into our food chain while our waters and air are being quietly polluted through over farming with all sorts of poisons in the name of food production. Our HOME planet is not being cared for or maintained as we would our own homes and is fast becoming unsafe. It’s time to take responsibility for this and start making different decisions so that we really look after what is most important and sacred to us: our HOME planet.
Bring your own bag for life when shopping. Say no to plastic bags. Say no to single-use plastic. Doing your part will help create a positive impact and the planet will thank you for helping create a cleaner and healthy HOME.
