This Artist Turns Icebergs Into Works of Art With an Important Message

Iceberg Art

While most people may look at an iceberg and see a block of floating ice artist Hula sees something very different—a canvas. Hula, a Hawaiian muralist, traveled to Nunavut, Canada in order to complete his latest project wherein he painted portraits of Indigenous women on icebergs.

“For most people, it’s about the polar bears, it’s not about the people,” said Jesse Mike, a local Inuit woman whose portrait Hula painted. “Well, let’s make it about the people.”

Hula and his team hope to do just that. The project, entitled “What If I Fly,” evokes the terrible reality people who live in areas affected by climate change face every day—like the iceberg-portraits their world could disappear at any moment.
