"Red fishes" is a collection of paintings guided by the artist Massoud Lari in the Ateliers Créatifs du Chant d'Oiseau, Brussels, Belgium.

This collective work brought together more than 50 painters interested in the marine world. The red colour vibrates in all works, providing a metaphorical meaning for the World Oceans Day 2018.

This vital colour symbolizes both the vitality in our seas and rivers, as well as a wake-up call to the dangers and damages suffered by the world marine. In addition, the work culminates with a re-creation of Pieter Brueghel's work on the biblical proverb, "The big fish eats the small fish", which paradoxically calls for restraint and respect of the human being for the others and the environment.
