Portuguese artist creates mural to help New Brunswick’s wood turtle
Art and activism have come together in the form of a mural that the artist hopes will inspire others to protect the very species he’s trying to create — the wood turtle.
“I makes images and portraits of animals or elements of the nature with what kills them, the pollution, the trash, the contamination,” said Artur Bordalo, a mural artist from Portugal who goes by Bordalo II.
Bordalo has traveled the world creating a series of works called Big Trash Animals. He says he’s trying to draw attention to the issues waste products can have on wildlife.
