Recap - Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans

August 28, 2015

Last month PangeaSeed hosted his second annual mural festival “Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans” in collaboration with 1xRUN, Tony Delfino, and World Art Destinations. This ground-breaking street art project beautified the Caribbean island of Cozumel, Mexico, while brought education, connection, and inspiration to the community.

Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is the first movement of its kind helping to save our seas via public art and activism: artivism. The festival featured over 50 world class artists from across the globe, including names as Tristan Eaton, Curiot, Fintan Magge, Phlegm, Seher One, Smithe One, Caratoes, Jason Botkin, Zio Ziegler, Alexis Diaz, Franco Fasoli Jaz, just to mention a few. All of them brought out vital ocean environmental issues into the spotlight.

In addition to the realization of the murals, the artists had the opportunity to immerse themselves into and experience the various marine ecosystems of Cozumel Island, and learn from local experts about environmental challenges they are facing.

They left behind 35 positive messages and a transformed city aiming to educate and inspire individuals and communities to protect the planet's most important ecosystem: the ocean. Portraying that no matter where you are in the world, the ocean supplies us with every second breath we take so it lives vicariously though each of us until we leave this life behind. —Enriqueta Arias
