At first glance, these images look like like photos of glaciers and icebergs afloat on tranquil and frigid seas. The truth is somewhat more interesting, however – they’re enormous soft pastel finger drawings by U.S. artist Zaria Forman.
Forman’s works (which we wrote about before here) often span an entire wall, which is how she manages to keep them photorealistic while still using her fingers to create them.
She is an environmentally conscious artist, so many of her works, whether depicting glaciers, bodies of water or storm fronts, focus on the problems we face in terms of water conservation, water sharing, and the melting of the polar ice caps due to climate change.
