ABOUT THE ART

As part of my Animal Behaviour series, I have continued the whimsical theme of finding comparative uses of words in the English language in order to create an illustration to suit a given animal, from Mother Nature. This instance is the remarkably colourful Macaw parrot. For years I have watched and observed many a debate on the education system, and this idea has stemmed from those observation, plus my own recalls on the process I went through to get a standard education.

The simple fact is the modern education has done little to change over the past 200 years, since it's invention. It is a system designed to literate people into simple folds of plausible work states. Making them drones to a capitalist system. For this reason the term "parrot teaching' arose, to indicate the method by which information is spouted out, and instantly repeated by the student body.

To show this in a illustrative way, I have rendered a macaw standing on a pile of old books, that indicate archaic methodology, whilst standing in front of the common blackboard, repeating the repeat after me punishment that education has become.
