Michael Killen, Silicon Valley Artist maybe best known, in the context of art, for paintings ‘Sustainability’ and ‘Resilience of America’, both (24 x 5 feet) and his Don Quixote Carbon Climate and Ocean Change Series of paintings. All of these works bring attention to the impact of carbon emissions and the need for solutions now.
He made ‘Guernica, After Picasso’ (7 x 4 feet) before he had even thought about making painting that help raise the level of discussion of the threat of carbon emissions.
“Michael says, “I made ‘Guernica, After Picasso’ –the seventh or so painting I had ever made. It was difficult because of lack of experience and I was recovering from a failed knee replacement. I had to learn everything and I had to rest the knee every now and then.” It took a month to make the painting.
