Australian Environmental Activists Tried to Deface a Portray in a Perth Gallery

Australian environmental activists have painted the Woodside power firm’s brand on a portray in protest on the firm’s alleged destruction of rock artwork within the north-west of the nation. WAtoday, an area information web site, reported on 19 January.

Utilizing stencil and spray cans, activist Joana Particka drew the Woodside brand on Frederick McCubbin’s “Down On His Luck”, which is on show on the Artwork Gallery of Western Australia in Perth. She then taped her hand to the wall subsequent to the body and her like-minded Nungar Desmond Blerton positioned an Australian Aboriginal flag on the ground.

The motion was meant to protest in opposition to Woodside’s $50 billion Burrup Peninsula venture, which activists stated may destroy historic rock artwork preserved in north-west Australia.

In December, anti-cosmetics activists doused a portray on the “Discover Banksy” exhibition in St Petersburg with cream.
