Murals by Louis Masai

The animal kingdom is filled with fascinating species of all shapes and sizes. However, many of these creatures are facing endangerment and even extinction due to the devastating effects of climate change. That is why one artist is using his creative talents to spread awareness for these vulnerable species.

Kevin Hubsmith is the picture-perfect image of health and happiness.

From the outside, this male model has it all. The glitz and the glamour.
