Landslides in Art Part 5

Posted by Dave Petley

I apologise for the lack of posts of late. I am currently in Pakistan to visit the Attabad landslide, courtesy of FOCUS Pakistan. I will post on that soon, and of course there has been a great deal happening in the landslide world whilst I have been in the field.

Anyway, this is the latest in my series on landslides in art. The previous parts can be found here:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4 (coastal erosion)

This edition of courtesy of the ever-helpful Sekhar Kuriakose of ITC in the Netherlands.

The artist in E.J Roychan, an artist from Kerala in India, now living in Saudi Arabia. The piece is called “Urul Pottal”, which means debris flow, in Malayalam. Sekhar describes the genesis of the piece as follows:

“He is a very good friend of mine. He got inspired by my work on landslides and contemplated and created this piece for me.”
