J. Steven Manolis' Flamingo Series reflects the artist's desire to bring awareness to how the flamingo have been severely affected by climate change. The early Audubon paintings of the flamingo show a much more vibrant pink bird. As pollution and climate change have affected the shrimp which the flamingo eat, the flamingo's color has changed to a more orange-pink color. Manolis points out through his painting, that man has to take care of the earth because the affects of the damage are permanent.
