PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls: Murals For Oceans – Cozumel 2015 presented by The Seventh Letter

PangeaSeed's Sea Walls: Murals For Oceans – Cozumel 2015. Presented by The Seventh Letter from CHOP EM DOWN on Vimeo.

PangeaSeed, the international marine conservation organization, in collaboration with 1xRUN, Tony Delfino, and World Art Destinations, hosted the second annual summer series of its groundbreaking mural festival, Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans. The festival took place from July 17 – 26, 2015, creatively beautifying the Caribbean island of Cozumel, Mexico, while bringing education, connection, and inspiration to the community. This special video give the viewer an insider point of view of daily events and interactions between the artists, staff and local community.

Within the span of 5 days, 35 large-scale public murals were realized throughout Cozumel’s town center, addressing pressing marine environmental issues such as shark finning, over fishing, coastal development, climate change, and coral reef conservation. This series of Sea Walls murals helps educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of our ocean and the life that calls it home. 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. The team also had the chance to both witness endangered sea turtles lay their eggs, as well as help release sea turtle hatchlings into the ocean.

Throughout the week, PangeaSeed team members facilitated youth educational activities where the island’s local kids were able to learn about the importance of marine animals such as sharks, turtles, and dolphins whilst making arts and crafts from reclaimed materials. Furthermore, a public screening of award-winning documentary film México Pelágico attracted over 100 residents to the main square of Cozumel. The film highlights the vast diversity of marine biodiversity in Mexico, the challenges, and pioneering efforts to help sustain the health of the ocean ecosystem in Mexico.

PangeaSeed’s 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 contemporary artists from across the globe, collaborating to bring vital ocean environmental issues into the spotlight. Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans aims to educate and inspire individuals and communities to protect the planet’s most important ecosystem: the ocean.

“The power of public art and activism has the ability to educate and inspire the global community to help save our seas. No matter where you are in the world, the ocean supplies us with every second breath we take and life on Earth cannot exist without healthy oceans. With dwindling global fish stocks, rising sea levels, and widespread pollution, whether you live on the coast, in the city or in the mountains, we should all feel responsible for the health of the oceans and life that lives within it,” says PangeaSeed Executive Director Tre’ Packard.

BURLESQUE OF NORTH AMERICA

Burlesque is a multi-disciplinary creative studio focusing on graphic arts and high quality screenprinting. Headquartered in Minneapolis MN, the studio was formed in 2003 from the ashes of seminal and sardonic graffiti magazine Life Sucks Die. What began as a loose collective of graffiti artists, photographers, and illustrators transitioned into a group of graphic artists for hire including Wes Winship, Mike Davis, George Thompson, Todd Bratrud, and Aaron Horkey. While exploring effective DIY techniques for printing concert posters, Winship quickly found that screenprinting would also serve as a way to reproduce his and his friends’ other artwork, creating printed editions of art which could be sold at affordable prices.

After officially naming the studio Burlesque, the focus on screenprinting led the group to design and print concert posters while fine-tuning their skills and printing equipment with each project. As the workflow grew, so did the desire to learn more about all aspects of the screenprinting process. To this day, Burlesque continues to push the envelope by producing 10, 15, and even 20+ color screenprinted posters which capture astonishingly accurate details. In recent years, artists such as Ron English, Tara McPherson, Jim Phillips, Richey Beckett, and Tom Whalen have all sought out Burlesque for the screenprinted production of their artwork.

Press Check is a collection of screenprinted work spanning Burlesque’s entire career – from Wes Winship’s cut-and-paste Arcade Fire pastiche to Mike Davis’ clean but stylized vector illustrations to art prints produced for graffiti / graphic design icons 123Klan, renaissance draftsman Aaron Horkey, musician and fine artist John Baizley, Seventh Letter artists Sever, Ewok, and Vize, as well as work from David Choe, Ron English, Aaron Draplin, and more.

REVOK in Germany @ Ruttkowski;68

Revok is Jason Williams’s second show this year following an exhibition in Los Angeles with the same title. It refers to the concept of identity that he has been exploring since 1990, when he adopted the name as his alias after becoming dissatisfied by the expectations and connotations of social status.

At first, Jason used Revok as a pseudonym when he started out as a graffiti artist. For Jason, Revok generally is a frame within which he can define himself without social constraints.

While many former graffiti artists drop their pseudonyms when they enter the world of art, Jason refuses to let it go. In this way, his examination of the self continues. It has become a crucial part of his work, questioning the assimilations that we all engage in every day to reflect our opponents and circumstances.

For his Revok exhibition at Ruttkowski;68 gallery, Jason goes beyond the self to examine perceptions of consciousness and unconsciousness.
