The exhibition is a collection of works Maria has produced during her investigation of the relationship between humans and animals in the 21st century. She uses confrontational and explicit imagery to explore topics such as animal endangerment, deforestation, animal agriculture, and more. Through her body of work, she hopes to start difficult conversations about morals and how each of our actions are impacting the Earth.
Maria Melito is an Rockwood-based animal rights artist. She grew up on a farm, which from a young age instilled in her a love for animals and a passion for animal rights activism. Through painting and drawing, she aims to give a voice to the voiceless and shed light on the devastating reality for animals on this planet. She completed her Studio Art studies at the University of Guelph in 2019 and has been working out of her studio in Rockwood.
