In his extensive examination of Miami’s natural habitat, Brazilian native Ernesto Kunde uses contrasting colors and abstract imagery to depict mangroves’ intricate root systems, sea grapes and their canopies, and other native plant life. In his developing “Mangrove Series,” he has created dozens of paintings from small to large scale. The artist hopes to raise awareness of the changing landscapes he depicts. His intricate paintings aim to involve and inspire viewers to realize we are all responsible for the natural surroundings, vital to our survival.
