The war on Earth in light of the climate crisis and global warming, which have raised the issue of the environment to one that has developed new editions, is also reaching the world of art.
Israeli artist Oren Fischer completed the 320-square-meter mural "It's in Our Hands" in Kiryat Hamelacha in Tel Aviv as part of an international art project called "Hope through action" to mark 50 years of activity for the Greenpeace environmental organization.
As part of the project 'Huge murals will appear in 12 countries around the world, as a call and inspiration for activist action through art.

At the center of Fischer's work is a huge, humanized earth, with paintings depicting the complexity of his existential state through the use of humorous images and texts.
Addressing pollution, wars, forcible takeover of resources by politicians, corrupt tycoons and more.
At the bottom of the piece there are a line of people holding the world in their hands, a kind of tribute to the atlas kneeling under the load of the universe.
They lift it and prevent it from collapsing.
Fischer himself, a resident of the Shapira neighborhood, explained his work:
Painting is about taking responsibility, and understanding that people have the power to change reality with their own hands and shape the change they want to take place in the world.
