Environmental Graphiti – The Art of Climate Change by artist Alisa Singer

Exhibit at the Wauconda Area Library, April 5 through May 31st!

Alisa Singer believes climate change to be the most critical challenge facing our world, and sought to find a way to use her art to further efforts to bring awareness to the issue. She was attracted by the inherently aesthetic design elements of scientific charts and graphs, and intrigued by the idea of using art to give them dramatic effect. She conceived the Environmental Graphiti project in 2014 and created the series, The Art of Climate Change, with abstract images illustrating the science behind the critical changes impacting our planet.

Each painting in the series is based on a chart, graph, word or number representing a key fact about climate change.

The art is now held by over 30 universities across the country and in Canada. A number of universities hold multiple pieces, such as Loyola University Chicago (23), University of California-Irvine (17), and the University of Alberta, CA (6). The Ontario Science Centre, one of the world’s leading science museums, has acquired 5 pieces to be displayed beginning in 2018.
