Art claiming for the Oceans

It is an incredible global street art project, named Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans, in which artists from all over the world who decide to participate paint walls with animals from the Oceans.


“This mural focused on dolphin captivity. Thousands of dolphins around the world are still legally held captive for human entertainment. In the wild, bortlenose dolphins are known to swim over 100 miles a day. In captivity, they are confined to small tanks and they trained to do tricks for food.”. Cancun, ME. From https://www.facebook.com/SeaWallsMuralForOceans

The Festival already had been in Los Angeles, Vietnam, Mexico and Sri Lanka, and other countries. It is organized by international nonprofit PangeaSeed Foundation: “When hosting a Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans festival, we aim to engage with the local community to foster a sense of pride and ownership for the murals, and above all, for the health of their local marine ecosystems.” From https://www.pangeaseed.foundation/sea-walls/

This project’s intention is to raise issues such as overfishing, plastics and pollution, global climate change, and habitat loss.


“The mural is dedicated to raise awareness about the north Atlantic Right Whales, which are one of the most endangered of all large whales, with a long story of human exploitation and no signs of recovery despite protection since the 1930s. They reside around Cape Cod and the Bay of Fundy during the summer, but females migrate to Noth Florida and Georgia during winter time to give bith in the coastal waters of Jacksonville – where this mural is located.” Jacksonville, FL. From https://www.facebook.com/SeaWallsMuralForOceans


“This mural focused on human impact and plastic pollution greatly affecting the Tijuana River Valley. A vital local waterway in the San Diego area connecting to the Pacific Ocean.” San Diego, CA. From https://www.facebook.com/SeaWallsMuralForOceans
