Title of Artwork:
The painting highlights the importance of recycling and its key role in urban farming in order to build a sustainable community. Just like what can be seen in the artwork, the main subject stands in a rooftop wherein a garden is maintained and in his hands, he holds a makeshift plant container recycled from a plastic bottle. On the other hand, the scene in the background shows structures that have incorporated "agritecture" ― the practice of architectural thinking when designing agriculture for the built environment. The floating whales illustrate the thriving life forms brought about by nurturing nature. Finally, the painting sheds light on how taking care of the environment enables us to breathe easier, for the next generation to experience the same.
