With Aria Luna of Aria Luna Art
Artist Aria Luna chats about the origins of Bogo Mogo, how the story can be used to help protect oceans from plastic pollution, and why coloring books are such great tools for drawing readers into the creative process. She also tells us about a particularly unique Oregon Junco, her paintings for social justice, and the upcoming Amazonas exhibit.
Aria Luna is one of the world’s youngest exhibiting artists. Her traveling exhibit Fusion Tide tells the story of Bogo Mogo. This terrifying plastic monster is the antagonist of the free coloring book story, The Quest to Defeat Bogo Mogo, which was written by Aria Luna’s mom, Birgitte Rasine, with coloring book page illustrations by Luba Rasine-Ortoleva. Aria Luna is a nature-lover and changemaker passionate about marine life, ocean health, and other issues impacting local and global communities.
