Artist's description:

The background is Crystal River. A river from Colombia with 5 different colors.
Each day 100 Elephants are killed due to their Ivory, so I made a story in which the mother elephant was rescued with her baby and brought into this paradise. In my fantastic story these places are restricted to human and only a few could enter to take good care of the place and the animals...I dream with them being in a beautiful place like Crystal River.

This painting is from my series of artworks about immigration.
For many different reasons we are forced or motivated to leave our country.
A mixture of feeling invade us, fear, excitement, nostalgia, anger, desolation, hope.
During the adventure of finding a new home, we also discover ourselves.
We are so far from our traditions and culture that we can finally think from our heart.
There is a moment when we finally find our home.
A new home, better than the one we left behind.
In my paintings the animals have traveled a long way and their wish is to find a better home. I really love to use art to bring conscience about the impact we have on these animals lives, most of the animals have been moved from their homelands, we are growing and with the industrialization endanger them by destroying their habitat.
