El Davo, an illustrator whose work addresses the impact of human beings on the environment.
El Davo's work has traditionally examined Mother Nature versus Humanity; looking at our devastating impact on the environment caused by the toxic lifestyles promoted by consumerism. His new direction however appears to be reflecting on the fightback and rebalance where nature strikes back.
In a period of huge consumerism, El Davo forces the viewer to evaluate the impact of our habits. A recurrent theme in El Davo's work are phone chargers, which appear in nests, fish bowls and food, forcing us to think about the use of plastics and how they will outlast us all.
There are islands of plastics in our oceans, we are slowly destroying the planet we live on through our obsessions with fossil fuels and plastic. Sometimes art is one of the only ways to highlight this. El Davo's work is political but the message is transported with an element of humour which might just help it to span the bridge and preach to those who need converting.
