the mural is defined by bright colors and abstract figures, which are almost cartoon-like. among the different shapes and forms, observers will be able to make out flowers at the bottom, a smartphone-clutching man in the center, and weather symbols at the top. when describing his work and the ideas behind it, vitaly tsarenkov comments: ‘when the whole world stands on the threshold of global ecological catastrophes, a lot of people haven’t realized yet that the future of our planet depends on the actions of every single person. it’s impossible to stop all harmful factories at once, but to make the first step towards a clean earth is not difficult and within everybody’s power just by taking the trash away after recreation in nature.’
