American artist David Boba is well-known on social media platforms for creating striking artworks in locations with unique views of the natural environment.
His latest project, launched on Monday, is a classic tribute to the dinosaurs that roamed the Earth before humans.
The New York-based artist said he chooses locations to make his artworks “of a special nature”.
Sir David Attenborough’s new documentary series, Prehistoric Planet, was released with Bubba as part of its staff and his artwork was completed.
Bubba used the natural environment to create his artwork, which inspired him to travel to the Jurassic Coast in the UK, Utah and Finland to create large-scale dinosaur images.
The artist says that the use of natural elements like charcoal and chalk gives him the opportunity to create such an amazing piece of art apart from large spaces.
Buba uses a drone to present his creations to the public and give an idea of the scale of the artwork.
He told the BBC: “We’re used to seeing things in our lives from a horizontal plane and special surfaces, but how many beautiful surfaces are there that look completely different from above?”
“There are countless sites that are unique,” he added.
Before he participated in the team of the series “Prehistoric Planet” produced by “Apple TV”, the artist presented ideas on how to use prehistoric influences in creating artworks.
So when Bubba got the chance to make this collection, he said he couldn’t believe it.
“I was actually planning to do this series of fossil discoveries until Apple called me and asked me to do this project, and I was amazed at the synergy,” he said.
And due to the difficulties caused by the use of drones and weather, Buba revealed the times when he thought his artwork would not succeed.
He told the BBC that the work on this art series was very difficult, and that he was fascinated by surfaces characterized by unique shapes, which were often the greatest difficulty in the work.
Changing weather conditions can extend Bauba’s workdays to 15 hours, giving him enough time to complete his artwork.
The artist said that he was very happy when he saw his artwork using the drone and how well the environment and rocks looked.
He added, “I didn’t paint the skin of (the dinosaur) Triceratops much because the context served me.”
“One thing that sticks with me in my work is trying to do something, going on an adventure where you think you might fail and seeing what you can do, and it works for everybody,” Bubba said.
