CLIMATE WEEK STREET ART AT CENTRAL PARK ZOO: Pictures included for Arlin Graff and Greenpoint Earth’s Animal in the Amazon Mural

World famous street artist Arlin Graff painted a mural at Central Park Zoo during Climate Week NYC to benefit the animals whose habitats have been destroyed in the fires ravaging the amazon.

Pieces of the mural, titled “Habitat Fragmentation,” are being auctioned off in two different sizes (2’ x 2’ and 2’ x 4’), and all proceeds will be donated to the Wildlife Conservation Society.

“Habitat Fragmentation,” created in partnership with Greenpoint EARTH, depicts a parrot native to the Brazilian Amazon. It was spray painted onto plywood. Each piece of the original 8’ x 16’ mural will be signed by Arlin Graff.

“Everything in nature is connected,” said Graff, who donated his time and art to the project.  “Everyone who takes home a piece of this mural is part of a larger effort to protect our natural world.”

Graff is a Brazilian artist whose vibrant, prismatic murals of animals have been commissioned for buildings and galleries all over the world. “Habitat Fragmentation” and the live-painting activation at Central Park Zoo was produced by Greenpoint EARTH, a new initiative from Greenpoint Innovations that raises awareness of climate change and nature-based solutions.
