More people than ever get an eye-opener and care about how we should take better care of our environment. So also today’s artist, Alberto Morales.

The scientists agree that if we don’t take action today, the next generations will suffer, and everyone has a responsibility to change behavior. We are really glad artists like Alberto Morales pay attention to these severe threats and spend his artwork waking up even more people

A look at Alberto Morales

Alberto Morales was born on November 21, 1952, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

After a 100 years of Argentina’s presence in Antarctica, the Dirección Nacional Del Antártico (National Directorate of Antarctica) invited him to participate in the “Multidisciplinary Program for Antarctic Diffusion and Culture” during the Antarctic Summer Campaign in 2005. Thanks to this program, he had the opportunity to travel for 40 days across the White Continent.

Focus on the global climate change

Meeting with this distant continent, mysterious and inaccessible, was for him an initiatory journey. He did not know that what he wanted to paint actually existed: The purity, the cleanness of the atmosphere, the simpleness of the vastness and the power of the Antarctic energy. He found that he could portrait the essence of things and the soul of man immersed in that extreme environment.

Passion for Antarctis and the world’s biggest challenge

He was asked to participate in a project to spread what Antarctic is, to other audiences different than the scientific ones. This had a huge impact on him, and since then, the experience’s been engraved in his conscience, questioning and worrying him. The news tells us about global climate change every day, but he could actually feel it in his body, seeing the constant crying of glaciers and melting ice, finding huge blocks of ice on the coast detached from the glaciers that once reached the sea.

Since then he has committed his work as an artist to generate awareness and spread this terrible threat that weighs on the world.

A wake-up call to the world – we can make a global change

Sea levels are rising and oceans are becoming warmer. Longer, more intense droughts threaten crops, wildlife and freshwater supplies. From polar bears in the Arctic to marine turtles off the coast of Africa, our planet’s diversity of life is at risk from the changing climate, according to Worldwide life. This is a wake up call, and all of us have a responsibility. Take action and begin to think more of the environment we all are part of, and we need it in the future too. Alberto Morales spread a very important message, and we admire him for his effort to wake up more people out there.
