[img_assist|nid=195304|title=The Scream|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=79|height=100]Edvard Munch painted his famous “The Scream” around the early parts of the last century. It is believed by some that the intense red in the skyline is actually a reddened skyline due to the recent explosion of Mt. Krakatoa. Though not man-made pollution, volcanic ash is a form of air pollution.
A little more info. Here is a link to an article in the New York Times discussing the possible link between the painting and Krakatoa.
Some of my favorite paintings of pollution are done by the infamous graffiti artist Banksy. Usually his stencil work is seen around the world on various structures and buildings. Recently though, the artists has left the streets and focused on doing a series of paintings that take famous pieces of art and updates them to sadly fit the world in which we live today. At a quick glance the artwork seems like a piece you have seen dozens of times before, but after closer inspection, you can see how modern day pollution has altered the original image.[img_assist|nid=195553|title=Banksy|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=0|height=0]
Currently, many artists are actually using elements of pollution to create their works. Jimmy Pons, for example, creates “Petrol Art” where he uses remnants of oil spills as his paint. The “tar biscuits” create colors that range from brown to black.
