Projects: Mixed Media Exploring Fishing Practices

Kenny Wang, The Great but Not So White Shark, Mixed Media Exploring Fishing Practices, 2013.

The Great but Not So White Shark

My piece relates to the problem of harmful fishing where long lines of deep sea hooks and netting can accidentally catch sea creatures other than the desired fish which often results in unintentional destruction of sea life. The shark I created is meant to display the beauty and vulnerability of one of the fiercest sea creatures by using multiple spectrums of colors as well netting material.

About Kenny

Conservation and art is really important to me because I am able to unleash my creativity and craftsmanship while revealing unknown environmental issues. I really enjoy mixed media art and assemblages because it doesn't restrict the artist to a single art medium and therefore allows a greater story behind every art piece.
