PETER DAVERINGTON has recently completed a 55-metre-long wall mural in Queens, New York.

Commissioned by The National Audubon Society and Durst Organisation, the mural features the American Black Duck, a species native to New York that is being threatened by the effects of climate change. The project is part of the Audubon Mural Project, an undertaking inspired by Audubon scientists' 2014 Birds and Climate Change Report, which concluded that over half of American bird species are under threat.

The mural's bright, sunset-coloured blues and oranges stretch out along the wall while a male and female duck float along the gradient, just as the species is often spotted doing in the East River.
