About the piece:
The film, ‘My Octopus Teacher’ showed a lot of people what it can to be human, and how so many have underestimated what it may mean to be an individual octopus. Artist Mart was inspired to create this drawing after watching the film and wanted to make something that questions our consumptive habits. Friend or food? Mart informed us he is most definitely in the friend camp.
