A brand new piece of street art has appeared on Park Row in Bristol, thanks to a collaboration between local artist Alex Lucas and the University of Bristol’s Cabot Institute.
Lucas’ artwork is an artistic collision of a potential future world with that of the very deep past. It is hoped that the bespoke artwork will encourage the public to reflect on the topic of uncertainty and show how different life could be with high levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and higher sea levels.
Speaking about why she got involved in the project, Alex Lucas said: “Due to the mysterious nature of what such creatures actually looked like, I felt I could ‘play’ with their personalities and provide them with certain characteristics. Their temperaments seemed to grow with their development on the page and they seem so charismatic!”
