Jamie met lots of people in Char Atra, Bangladesh, while visiting with Oxfam
One of the UK's most "innovative and well-known" artists is bringing his latest exhibition to Bristol.
Jamie Hewlett, the artist behind the comic strip band Gorillaz, will be showing his paintings at the Arts house gallery in Stokes Croft.
The new show, called Under Water Colours, will be the opening show at the new venue.
The free exhibition, organised by Oxfam South West, is open to the public from 29 January to 11 February 2010
It was inspired by a trip by Jamie, and Oxfam, to Char Atra in Bangladesh, which was struck by Cyclone Aila in late 2009.
On the trip, Jamie met people trying to raise their homes above the higher flood levels, parents who had lost children to the floods and children who swim half a mile to school with their books on their heads.
Jamie Hewlett said: "This exhibition shows how climate change is already affecting people around the world but also how we can all do something now to stop this from getting completely out of control.
"Char Atra is such an idyllic place and it's horrific to think of it being simply washed away, devastating the community.
"I wanted my paintings to be optimistic as well as realistic and I wanted to show what a beautiful place it is.
"I hope by concentrating on the people and their every day lives that I have given people here in Britain something they can relate to."
Limited edition prints of Jamie's paintings are being sold to support Oxfam's River Basin programme - so far they have raised almost £30,000.
The gallery will also host film screenings of climate change films such as The Age of Stupid and an evening focusing on Bangladesh on 5 February 2010, with speakers, film and music.
