Felipe Cardeña- Climate Change

Climate Change (The Loss of Innocence) is the latest work by Felipe Cardeña, and is dedicated (as the title suggests) to ongoing climate change. At the center of the picture, Botticelli’s Venus, which becomes the subject of controversy after the famous campaign by the Armando Testa agency commissioned by the Italian Ministry of Tourism.

But, this time, the Venus is not only dangerously sunk up to her thighs in the sea (which has the features of the famous Hokusai Wave), a symbol of the climate emergency, but also bombarded with splashes of color, recalling the deeds of Ultima Generazione’s activists, that protest precisely against the government’s underestimation of the climate emergency. Here is explained the second part of the title: “The loss of innocence”. In the face of the ongoing climate disaster, no one is innocent anymore.

Felipe Cardeña, born in 1979, is a street artist known for his mysterious style, often compared to Banksy. His identity is shrouded in secrecy, but his works, characterized by the use of elements of pop culture and vibrant flowers, are recognizable. He has lived in various European cities, participating in exhibitions worldwide, both officially and “clandestinely.” In 2007, he launched the Power Flower project, featuring ever-changing collages incorporating elements from popular culture.

His art is non-conformist and celebrates joyful and positive aesthetics, with the flower as a symbol of beauty and harmony. Cardeña uses the collage technique, blending mythological figures, oriental deities, and contemporary icons, surrounded by floral decoration. His eclectic style creates a fantastical world that oscillates between reality and imagination.

Through his works, Cardeña silently protests against the contemporary art system, criticizes consumerist society, and addresses issues such as climate change. His creations encourage reflection on the chaos of contemporary life, using familiar icons surrounded by flowers as a metaphor for images shared and viewed in the digital era.
