Surf artist Sean Yoro shows a fearless affinity for precarious surfaces, and his latest tryst with massive tides in Canada’s Bay of Fundy is no exception. The artist braved 28-foot tide to paint a touching mural of a woman that drowns every 15 minutes as water rises on Minas Basin, an inlet in the Bay of Fundy.

The artist recalls how he had to pace his work in sync with the rate of the tides while painting the 30 by 45 feet mural, writes Inhabitat.

Unfortunately, Yoro’s work would succumb to testing conditions in a couple of months but these “hyper-realistic, large-scale murals” do raise awareness about climate change, notes The Mind Unleashed
