Local Aruban artist Grace Ashruf’s featured at ArtExpo New York 2016

Local Aruban artist Grace Ashruf’s featured at ArtExpo New York 2016.

Last week between the 14th and 17th of April, famous local artist Grace Ashruf was featured in her first US solo art exhibition during the ArtExpo New York 2016

Going beyond conventional horizons, to raise awareness of effects of climate change, Grace Ashruf is an artist, whose passion and admiration for the exotic natural landscapes, has driven her to create art that delivers a stirring message. Born and raised in Suriname, Ashruf has spent her professional career traveling many coasts of the Caribbean— vistas which are the subject of her “Global Warming” series. Ashruf’s current series illustrates her memories of what she cherishes most from her travels. These same attributes of a beautiful environment are in danger, and must be preserved.

Climate awareness is a subject that’s accepted, preached and endorsed by the top scientific minds of the world, yet there is still a massive gulf between this collective knowledge and actions by the people who can actually make a difference. Ashruf hopes to spark emotion and love for the environment with her work, speaking through art as a medium. Her “Global Warming” series transcends national borders and language barriers.

Ashruf wishes to show the world what she loves so much, and urges others to share in her efforts. Through the 20 impressive pieces of art, which are colorful, insightful, and elegant compositions, aimed at delivering a peaceful aurora, the “Global Warming” art collection will visually elaborate the values of carbon-monoxide levels and pollution in the world; a major and much ignored threat to our beautiful planet. Ashruf stated;

 “My desire is to spark a drive in the minds of people who view my work, if even one person joins my cause, my efforts will be worth it.”
