It was another rad adventure with the PangeaSeed and 1xRun family down to the Caribbean side of Mexico to the island of Cozumel off of Playa Del Carmen. All of the murals were focused around preserving our planet’s oceans and all of the participating artists were able to explore the island’s ecosystems, visit a wildlife preserve, snorkel at the famous El Cielo, and assist with a baby Loggerhead turtle release! It was a pleasure working with the super talented roster of artists from all over the world, all for the benefit of our most precious resource – the ocean.
My ‘Coral Conch Shell’ mural depicts the percentages of destruction vs. beauty of our Coral Reef systems, which are some of the most diverse and invaluable ecosystems in the world.It is calculated that 25-30% of coral reefs have already been destroyed, and 50-60% will have been destroyed if the current rate of destruction continues!! Increased carbon dioxide emissions and global warming are causing ocean acidification levels to drastically rise and break down delicate invertebrates and reefs systems worldwide.
We must reduce our carbon footprints, create less plastic/packaged waste, eat fresh locally sourced foods, think & act sustainably. Less is More, Live with Less!
