The artwork will creatively blend and smear colours on the Rhino sculpture using water and acrylic paint. The artwork aims to poetically evoke the natural habitat of the Rhino and raise awareness about habitat loss being a contributing factor in the decline of Rhino population numbers.</p><h2>Artist statement</h2><p>Chris Anderson is an emerging, interdisciplinary artist based in Wollongong and Kiama who works between graphic design, painting, media and installation art.<br><br>For 3 years he completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts as a Dean's Scholar, with a double major in Graphic Design and Media Arts.
