Lisa Roet is an artist who for 30years has exploring the concept of what it is to be human. For the past 6years Lisa has worked on a series of large scale public artworks touring urban centres, Hong Kong, Edinburgh, London, Beijing, Chengdu and Holland. These monumental public art projects feature newly discovered species of flora and fauna , in particular Primates ,drawing attention to the impact of urbanisation and global warning, the leading causes of species extinction and forest habitat destruction.

She has worked with the arts/design/science communities worldwide including collaborating with Botanical Gardens, zoos, environmental groups/museum archives to develop her art using a wide range of mediums and materials.
