Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans Festival in Cozumel, Mexico
PangeaSeed, the international marine conservation organization, in collaboration with 1xRUN, Tony Delfino, and World Art Destinations, is pleased to announce the second annual summer series of its groundbreaking mural festival, Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans. The festival, which creatively beautifies the surrounding area, while bringing education, connection, and inspiration to the community, will take place from July 17 – 26, 2015 on the Caribbean island of Cozumel, 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 will feature 30 world-renowned contemporary artists from across the globe, collaborating to bring vital ocean environmental issues into the spotlight. The festival’s educational workshops will engage local youth to learn more about critical marine environmental issues affecting their home island, and what they can do to help save our seas.

BIG MAHALOZ to the the entire Pow!Wow! Fam and to all the gracious volunteers that made the 'Alboni Temple' a reality. This was definitely one of the more challenging walls we've done, but the love we received from the community definitely made it all worth it. I couldn't have done it without the help of every single volunteer who put their heart and energy into this project. One Love: Nat, Eric, Nicole, Evan, J Sattva, Nina, John Hall & Conner and to all of those who helped with buffing. 


'VITALITY AND VERVE': Transforming the Urban Landscape

'VITALITY AND VERVE': Transforming the Urban Landscape | LBMA
Peace Movement. I'm a bit behind on posts, but wanted to let y'all know about the 'Vitality & Verve' Show that's taking place at the Long Beach Museum of Arts. What an honor it was to be a part of this show alongside some of my favorite artists & people. Many thanks to the LBMA, Thinkspace Gallery & Pow!Wow!LongBeach for making this all possible. 
The exhibition will focus on current developments in the growing field of urban contemporary art. It will feature site-specific ephemeral murals and multi-media installations by established and emerging cutting-edge artists who will be demonstrating the skilled and nuanced application of their craft. The exhibition will run through September 27, 2015.

‘Vitality and Verve’ aims to illuminate the sensory value and powerful practice of these artists as they transform the urban landscape around them. The meticulous renderings, the hyper-realistic imagery and patterns and the gestural strokes assert the diversity in a fully immersive experience. Participating artists will include: Aaron Horkey, Alex Yanes, Andrew Schoultz, Audrey Kawasaki, Brendan Monroe, Brandon Shigeta, Cryptik, Esao Andrews, Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins, Hot Tea, James Bullough, Jeff Soto, John S. Culqui, Low Bros, Meggs, Nosego, Nychos, Saber, and Tristan Eaton.

“One of the goals behind ‘Vitality and Verve’ is to spotlight artists who are stepping out of their studios to paint on a grand scale using outdoor walls as their canvas as well as urban artists who are beginning to work in a traditional studio setting.” said Ron Nelson, Executive Director of the Long Beach Museum of Art. “Most of the works in this exhibition will be created on our gallery walls using both traditional and non-traditional art media resulting in an immediacy that extends well beyond the confines of a picture frame. Once the exhibition ends, the walls will be repainted and prepared for the next exhibition. Therefore, it is important for art enthusiasts to see this amazing exhibition before it closes.”
