E. C. Kanko is a local artist and UIW alumni. After obtaining her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2010, her artwork branched out into many styles and mediums, including digital painting. Inspired by nature, current events, and social trends, she began an eight-year project that would become "Disasterworks". In this series, E.C. Kanko creates parodies of well known masterpieces to make effective before-and -after imagery without using an actual side-by-side comparison. These illustrations address various environmental and social issues, from littering to violence.
