Brooklyn-based artist Zaria Forman documents the realities of climate change. Her glorious pastel drawings of melting icebergs and extreme environments are inspired by her childhood spent travelling with family to seriously remote locations.

In 2012, Forman traveled to Greenland where she followed in the footsteps of American painter William Bradford and his 1869 journey. She used the opportunity to document the changing arctic landscape. More recently, she traveled to the Maldives, world’s lowest-lying country vulnerable to rising sea levels, where she created another body of work.

Apart from the fact that Zaria’s work is ridiculously beautiful, I’m most drawn to this sense duality she captures so effortlessly – her drawings have movement and stillness at the same time. They are both calming and eery. Divine and treacherous.
