Artists have addressed environmental topics for centuries, even millennia if we go as far back as Palaeolithic cave representations.
Environmental art has its modern origin in the 1960s and 1970s. Examples of artists are Alan Sonfist and Joseph Beys.
The topic of climate change has caught artists’ attention at least for several decades, and the number of artists is constantly increasing.
Any imaginable art genre is addressing climate change related themes. From paintings, photos, films to three-dimensional objects in mixed-media installations to participatory art interventions in public spaces… anything is possible.
