Karl Addison in Moscow: The Fisherman and the Depleted Sea


"Karl Addison was in Moscow recently for the MOST art festival and based his mural on a Russian fairy tale by Alexander Pushkin entitled The Fisherman & The Fish, written in 1833.  'The mural is a symbol from this folklore showing the Old Man with the Fish and to the corner his Wife as the Sea,' says Addison, 'Each level of the Sea is a darker and dark blue symbolizing the five requests she makes – making the Sea grow darker and violent each time.' Additionally the artist says his mural is a commentary on the modern methods of fishing that are rapidly killing off entire species."
