Sharks have a long evolutionary history going all the way back to the paleozoic era, more than 400 million years ago. 530 species of shark have been discovered to date.

Sharks are not a threat to humans, humans are the predators of sharks, killing more than 73 million per year. The global assessment indicates that 1/4 of shark and ray species are endangered, with twenty-some species in critical danger of extenction.

By drawing sharks I want to show all the diversity of this amazing animal. This project started in 2019 and will be conclude with the publication of a book. And no, sharks are not dangerous for human. I have swum with some of them and I’m pretty alive.
