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.

every aspect is flawless <3
I have lots of allergies and need to wear a mask even in the not as much polluted US.
2nd nice texture
I do like the first one more because of the colors and look of the eyes. (It feels very sad) It expresses so much about the story behind it.
This one is nice for showing the city though, and red is a very strong color.
this picture is amazing
I wish I believed the people who destroyed the air and water for profit could be trusted to spend the money to repair it.
Compared to the previous piece, I love how you added the dreary, dirty-looking environment around her, which adds to the message you're trying to tell. What I liked a bit better about the previous piece is the connection between the viewer and the girl in the picture. In the previous piece, she was looking straight at the camera, closed-up, clenching her chest like she really did have trouble breathing, while here she looks pretty chilled out, with her hands in her pockets, like this pollution is all normal. I get the viewpoint for both of them, but my preference for this aspect would go to the previous piece. What I do like in this new piece is the recurring use of red (in the street lights and the roses) and the way it contrasts with the green of the leaves on her mask and of course, the atmosphere brought by the background.
Also all the people in the background breaking traffic laws
They're both great pieces of art, as expected
Somehow, it makes me think of a mv from Eve, the Japanese singer. Anybody know his songs? They're beautiful, yet kinda cryptic.
