Super stoked to show you My Latest Piece i finished up in Mexico Recently
"The Unsung Hero" by supporting ARTivist Si Omer (United Kingdom) for PangeaSeed Foundation Foundation's latest edition of our international public art program, @seawalls_ Artists for Oceans in partnership with Proyecto Panorama
Location: Cozumel, Mexico | 20.4230° N, 86.9223° W
.Mural theme: Mangrove Conservation
.Artist statement: “The mangroves off the coast off Cozumel provide invaluable stabilization of the sediment to help prevent erosion on the coastlines. They also serve as critical nursery habitat for many species of fish, mollusks, crustaceans. Beyond providing shelter for threatened and endangered species, my piece pays respect to the amazing contribution that the mangroves tirelessly make every day to protect the coastline of Mexico and its inhabitants.
.The main character represents the mangrove as a soft astute figure that stands strong for all walks of life, feeding, purifying and keeping its comrades safe and sound. My work highlights the importance of keeping these trees rather than harvesting them to make way for construction and development in places like Cozumel for hotels and bars. The preservation of mangroves is imperative for our oceans and coastlines in Cozumel and across the globe."

Been a super busy 5 months, Nice to have some spare time to work on some new sketches
Here's some finals shots from my recent wall in Hawaii - have a read below :)
“You Are What You Eat” by supporting ARTivist Cracked Ink (New Zealand) for PangeaSeed Foundation latest edition of our international public art program, @seawalls_ Artists for oceans.
.Location: Wailuku, Maui | Mauka to Makai
.My piece depicts a world that has left behind nothing but trash, if we don’t change the Way we consume, it’s going to have a devastating effect on our sea life. Over the last few years whales have been found to have massive amounts of plastic bags, wrappers fishing hooks, bottles and nets found in their stomachs.
.Plastic pollution is a growing threat to whales and dolphins as well as seabirds and other marine creatures. Fifty-six percent of all whale and dolphin species, from small fish-eating dolphins to the largest filter feeding whales, have been recorded eating marine plastics they’ve mistaken for food.
.The phrase “You Are What You Eat” means that it is important to eat good food in order to be healthy and fit, well if we continue polluting our oceans at the rate we are, the life that calls the oceans home will no longer exist.”

I spent the weekend in Hamilton working on a piece for Agora in Frankton
Here's my final price for seawalls in Gisborne - "End of the Century" by supporting ARTivist @crackedink (England) for @pangeaseed Foundation latest edition of our international public art movement, @seawalls_ Artists for Oceans.
Location: Gisborne, New Zealand
Artist statement: "One fifth of the world population could be displaced by rising sea levels by the end of the century. The reality is we are going to have more people fighting for space on a smaller landmass if we do not act on climate change now.
If we do not educate individuals and communities to change consumption habits, the results are going to be catastrophic.
My mural is an image that is very simple to translate. The two main characters and the city under water watch massive balloons of CO2 being released into the atmosphere to represent the greenhouse gas emissions from industry and transpiration."

Here's the finished sections of my wall for the latest PangeaSeed Foundation mural for Seawalls Australia in Cairns called "Get To Know' -
A 28 metre long wall ,my mural encapsulates multiple different ocean matters including over fishing, plastic pollution, deep sea oil drilling , rising sea levels and many more different facts / questions and solutions along side of my illustration, i really wanted to focus on showing how many different problems we are facing at the moment in our oceans which all adds up into one gigantic problem. The main task we have ahead is educating and changing humans attitudes towards all of these issues. If we can get that right there is hope for all creatures and life in the ocean and planet earth.
Really Excited to be flying out to Cairns Tomorrow For Seawalls , watch this space for updates
