"Louis Masai is a visual artist based in London. He uses his research on endangered species as a topic of discussion to heighten the general public’s awareness of the ‘sixth mass extinction’. When not working in the studio, Masai travels around the world painting murals in cities, towns, and villages. These are often of locally endangered species. His paintings have reached out to people in ways that environmentalists and activists find hard to capture. To this effect, he often works alongside scientists, and conservationists as well as environmentally minded companies."
This episode is a little longer than the usual because we were enjoying ourselves and found so many topics that were fascinating to cover with Louis including Louis’ inspiration, his evolution as an artist, his local and international projects and the role of his art in communicating important messages. If you want to jump to a specific topic covered in the interview have a look at the timestamps in the show notes.
