PangeaSeed Presents – Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans – Mexico Expedition: Isla Mujeres 2014 from PangeaSeed on Vimeo.
Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a ground-breaking street art project created by PangeaSeed to bring the beauty and the plight of the world’s oceans into streets around the globe. By collaborating with internationally renowned artists, we create large-scale murals that focus attention on pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing.
In collaboration with our friends at 1xRUN, Residencia Gorila,World Art Destination and Juxtapoz Latin America we embarked on our biggest Sea Walls project yet. We’ve invited some of today’s most talented and renowned contemporary street artists to join us on our first-ever Sea Walls expedition.
The mission of the expedition is to offer these artists the opportunity to swim with and study endangered whale sharks and oceanic manta rays off the coast of the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico from July 20-28, 2014. Inspired by their interactions with these majestic giants in the wild, the artists created a series of large-scale public murals on the island to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of these animals and the oceans. The murals highlight the benefits of ecotourism and long-term sustainability of natural resources.
Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a new approach to ocean conservation, marrying art and activism – or as we like to call it “ARTivism”.
