PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls Project

April 23, 2014

My good friends at PangeaSeed are embarking on an awesome project that aims to get artists into the sea and spread awareness of our dying oceans by creating murals. The project is one of PangeaSeed’s biggest yet and I am absolutely exuberant to see this project come to fruition. More info on the project below:

 

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 we are embarking on our biggest Sea Walls project yet. We’ve invited some of today’s biggest names in contemporary street art 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 will create 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 will also 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. The Sea Walls expedition will make a large impact and gain global media attention – with your help.

“In Dreams” A David Lynch Artshow

March 6, 2014

Spoke Art is well known for it’s amazing themed shows. This March they will be hosting an exhibition themed around the work of David Lynch. I am excited to have been asked to be a part of this show and humbled to be included among such an amazing cast of artists. More info about the show itself follows:

Spoke Art is proud to announce our first ever David Lynch- inspired art exhibition, In Dreams. The show features a dynamic range of artwork influenced by the prolific and innovative films of director David Lynch. Comprised of over 50 artists from around the globe, each of the exhibited works evoke the emotional complexities and stylistic ventures of Lynch’s work through a variety of mediums, such as painting, sculptures and limited edition fine art prints.

Often defying the conventions of filmmaking, the films of David Lynch feature all-too-familiar worlds that, beneath their vibrant exteriors, guard unthinkable secrets. From the desolate and disturbing darkness of Eraserhead (1977) to the unspoken evils of a small town in the cult classic TV series Twin Peaks (1990), In Dreams presents a closer look into the unsettling, yet hypnotizing realm of Lynch’s cinematic repertoire
