PRESENTING

KINDRED

As every individual species is supported by the inter–relationships between many life forms, none can exist in isolation. In this way, each one of animals that you will explore in these works is made up of hundreds of animals and plants. What you see is an imaginative interpretation of scientific data using pen, ink and brush.

The importance of environmental conservation has been established in the public imagination by the use of a few keystone species. Animals like Rhinos, Gorillas and Tigers have come to signify the finite and conditional existence of living species. More people have been made to understand the impact that human existence has had on the natural environment. Yet, there remains a great need to see that life is sustained by dynamic interconnected relationships between organisms and their environments.

VALUED

ENDORSEMENT

Sujay Sanan is a remarkable young man. His art is strong and bold as he depicts marine life, wild life and our natural world. But in each of his works are the finest detail of the interdependance of life. Each image is rich with a hundred ecological stories within the outline of a tiger or a whale or another endangered species. He combines his wonderful art with an in depth understanding of ecology. In a way his unique images are mesmeric and enormously educative. I wish him the very best in his incredible endeavours.
