Paradise Lost. 24 x 18 inches - 61 x 46 cm
Signed by Shepard Fairey and Nicholas Kyle Bowers.
Numbered edition of 575.

"I recently collaborated with my friend, art assistant and artist Nicholas Bowers on this 'Paradise Lost' for Earth Day. Nic created a painting of a parrot, to which I added some of the my artwork. It was a lot of fun combining our two styles! Here's what Nic had to say about the artwork:
"In my recent work, I have contemplated the hierarchy of humans within the animal kingdom and our relationship to the place we call home and the species that share that home. Just going on a hike with my son m 'reminded me of Mother Nature's fantastic gift of complicated yet simple pleasures. The Earth was there, reminding me of her incredible strength and vulnerable fragility. Yet there is a permanent disconnect between our roles in the hierarchy. We placed ourselves at the summit without understanding the responsibilities and repercussions. As much as we take from her, we should return the favor. So this Earth Day, find a mountain trail or a beach blanket and let her remind you why it must be protected. Our permanent kinship will keep it in a state of balance." Nicholas Bowers"

"I completely agree with Nic's inspiration, and would only add that 'Paradise Lost' is a warning, not an inevitability. We can all take helpful steps to rebalance paradise." Shepard Fairey
