Twelve illustrators including Jasper Goodall, Mike Gillette, Pete Fowler, Jody Barton and Airside have been drafted in by Greenpeace to spotlight the destruction of the Indonesian rainforest. In commissioning these artists, Greenpeace believes it can communicate how illegal logging is causing an ecological crisis. The indigenous orangutan features prominently in the work – day-dreaming disaster (Goodall), surrounded by smouldering debris (Fowler, pictured) and raging, King Kong-like, among urbanised ruins (Airside). The show, called Save or Delete, runs from 17 July to 3 August at the.gallery.oxo in London’s Thames-side Oxo Tower Wharf.
