In World of Zhu, a collaborative project between Indian artists Svabhu Kohli and Viplov Singh, the creative duo has created a vibrant animal universe where bears, flamingos, and deer take center stage. Over the past few years, the two artists have worked together numerous times on nature-focused art that aim to educate people on the importance of protecting the environment.
“In the past few decades, there has been a visible change in the world around us,” Kohli tells us. “There are new stories and new conflicts, and in addressing these ideas, we’re learning and reflecting. We share our planet with these different species and our collective survival rests on the balance we share with them. Telling their stories feels important at a time when the natural world is fast disappearing.”
