A remake of my older painting titled Breathe. It was inspired by my visit to China last year. China is the land of my birth and it always pains me to see the air so polluted, even after all these decades, I still can’t breathe freely when I’m there, I have to wear a mask. 

Despite China’s recent attempts to clean up the pollution, it will be a long time before the air is clean again. We should have kept our environment clean to begin with instead of trying to fix it after the damage is done.

I like the drawing, and I think the remake is better as it adds more context to the drawing :)

I really love the design of the mask. It reminds me of how people used to believe in miasma。

At first I thought this was inspire day Jay Kristoff's book series where it is Japanese steampunk and everyone need s mask because of pollution!

I like the messages you put into all of your pictures. The environment is a very strong one for you I noticed. I agree with you 100% We shouldn't wait until the damage is done to fix things. It just makes it much harder. It's a shame people don't take things seriously at the moment like they should :(

I noticed there's a lot of use of red in this picture. Does this represent the danger we're in?

It would be so cool to be able to buy masks based off of your Breathe paintings. 
I have lots of allergies and need to wear a mask even in the not as much polluted US.

Love the splashes of red in a very grey-brown (dead/polluted) environment! Powerful piece
