We Breathe The Sea (Destroy the ocean and the ocean will destroy you) - Architecture

Featured In Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Item details

Destroy the ocean and the ocean will destroy you. Sometimes it kind of feels like we don’t deserve it and sometimes I think it knows it. The more we take from nature, the more it fights back. It is patient and forgiving but it won’t sit idly by while your carbon foot keeps buying bigger shoes.

You don’t want to stand by and watch it drain down the sinkhole, while you slowly wonder what you could have done to help keep it in your cup. If you find yourself in the middle middle of a hurricane when you ask yourself that question, you’re a few minutes too late.

It’s best you did something now whilst you still have time. It will help you breathe.

Second in the series of the car parks exploring particular narratives

Myneandyours is an artist uninterested in definition - in fact he’s confused by it. His work explores a continuing narrative seeking dialogue in the hope of stimulating curiosity about ourselves. Really he’s just speaking to his younger self asking him to take a step back and consider things. His bold visual language full of colour and misleading wit seems cheerful on the outside, but is laced with dark undertones riddling the viewer into a false sense of security.

He comes from no artistic institution, has had no formal artistic training, has never participated in a residency, has refused a label, but has interned for one of the most influential street artists of our time. He exists as an anomaly.
