New on the streets of London are these beautiful artworks by ATM. He studied at art college in Sheffield and was heavily influenced by Audibon.His work is a warning sign. The birds he paints are under threat, many of them common when he was a child are becoming rarer. A portent of the impending catastrophic effects that climate change will unleash. As a teenage twitcher his work has a particular resonance for me, having spent much of my adolescence exploring the New Forest and the wildlife of Keyhaven Marshes. I have always felt close to nature. Lovely to see his work reintroducing Avians to the concrete jungle.
