The social graphic art by Olavi Fellman „SAVE THE PLANET. GRAPHICAL OPINIONS”
Political art against greed and climate catastrophe.
basic themes in Olavi’s art are the human condition, climate
change, the endangerment of civilization as in the rights of future
generations, of mother earth and animals. The caricaturistic
characters in his works are taken from art history and artistic
themes, myths, philosophy, music, politics and politicians or the
animal kingdom. The quota of women is substantial.
Olavi studies the background of his characters to empathize with them and the different texts in his works are a mixture of the original character’s statements and Fellman’s ecological message of world improvement. These works echo a scream for humanity, the climate, nature and future generations. Olavi himself is the father of two children and a founder of for example PAND – Artists for peace -climate team and also active most Fridays in the Climate parents with Greta Thunberg movement.
