OPS Feature Artist

Inspiring conservation and awareness through art

OPS is often approached by artists around the world seeking to contribute to both OPS’ mission and public awareness about issues such as wildlife conservation, climate change, and protecting oceans and marine life.

In response, we are launched our ‘OPS Feature Artist’ partnership program that features a different artist on a rotating basis. A few times a year, OPS will highlight the work of profiled artists, showcasing their artwork to motivate and ignite the activist in each of us.

OPS believes in the power of art and imagery. By featuring the amazing artwork of ‘artivists’ around the globe, we are committed to inspiring individual action and fostering collaborative solutions to the Planet’s most pressing issues.

All media and artistic platforms are invited for consideration. Contact us to become the next OPS Feature Artist.

Chasing Chinook (Original Drawing)

Original pen and ink on acid free paper.

From the Artist:

“This piece addresses the plight of the Southern Resident orcas, a population of orcas found in the North Pacific off the coasts of British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. Unlike other populations of orcas that have a diverse diet and feed on whales and seals in addition to fish, the Southern Residents are exclusively fish-eating. Their primary source of food is Chinook salmon.

The southern resident community population has been dwindling for years, and younger whales have appeared emaciated. Their decline is thought to be due, if not primarily then at least in part, to dwindling numbers of Chinook salmon. Other possible factors are thought to be pollution and noise disturbance from marine vessels.

I wanted to focus this drawing on the food source angle, with a pod of whales chasing a single Chinook salmon.”
