My name is Ravi Koranga and I’m a 24-year-old artist from India. I decided to create a theme I felt is so important to understand, posting what’s happening in ocean depictions every day of Inktober.

My conceptual art series shows a tiny scuba diver wandering through different ocean-facing scenarios which depict how much destruction is caused by plastic. And my illustrations don’t end with Inktober. Big Companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsi co, Nestle are targeted through my art, which raises the question – Why does Marine Life and the Ocean have to suffer due to the Consequences of their Endless Plastic Production and why we must stop consuming these products. Each piece of artwork has informative knowledge. Make sure to check them out.

So if you’re looking to support cleaner oceans or are in favor of the plastic ban, check out my art below. It will surely show you the importance!

This is just sad 😞. People should know better than to do things like this. It nice to enjoy a cold drink at the beach but you have to throw away your trash. Please, people, learn to care about the environment

Plastic is found in pretty much every layer of the ocean column and approximately 95% is actually found on the ocean bed. In some places, the ocean bed is over 10 kilometers deep, and it is very difficult to reach those depths.
