Street Artists Cover Mexican Island In Murals To Help Save Sharks And Manta Rays - PangeaSeed
In collaboration with 1xRUN, Residencia Gorila, World Art Destinations and Juxtapoz Latin America, PangeaSeed are pleased to share with you the results of “Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans – Mexico Expedition”. The week-long mural festival resulted in 14 amazing large scale ocean-themed murals on the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
Our goal was to raise awareness for the conservation of the ocean and greatly needed protection for the whale sharks and manta rays off the Yucatan peninsula, by means of art and creativity.
For this pioneering project, we collaborated with a select group of internationally acclaimed contemporary artists who were given the opportunity to swim with and study whale sharks and oceanic manta rays and experience these majestic giants in their natural environment. Both of these iconic ocean animals are listed as species threatened with extinction on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species.
Inspired by their personal animal encounters, the artists created the murals to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities as well as to highlight the benefits of ecotourism and the long-term sustainability of natural resources.

El Mac paints a beautiful new mural in Toronto.
El Mac was finally able to leave the States for the first big mural project he has done out of the country since having struggled with health issues as of late. Thankfully, it looks like he has recovered nicely with his skills intact from the looks of this stunning piece that was commissioned by Eventscape in Toronto. The wall adjacent to the Gardiner Expressway was executed in collaboration with Montreal’s STARE and Toronto’s KWEST, who contributed on the background.
Today we’ll take a look at Beatriz Martin Vidal, an illustrator coming from Valladolid, Spain. Her artworks depict a world that’s just slightly magical, where the butterflies on a child’s dress can come to life and birds act as guides. She combines traditional and modern techniques – colored pencils, watercolors, inks and of course Photoshop.
Skull Oil Paintings by Jade Doreen Waller
The artwork of Jade Doreen Waller is characterized by an ethereal punctuation of symbols, whispering of a magical momentary fusion of the past, the present and the future. Waller’s allegories, a glimpse into her world, are superbly realised with meticulous detail, reminiscent of Dutch and Flemish styles. Her works are inescapably alluring, enticing one into a deep oceanic subconscious, aesthetically aided by the classical yet uncluttered compositions, the smooth sumptuousness of paint, cold pearlescent colour, tangible and accessible detail, and the radiance of dark contrasts. Like a jellyfish entering into Waller’s world, one easily surrenders to this current of infinite wonder.
I think this video might interest you guys.
4 days ago, Olivia Olson confirmed that Marceline and Bonnibel have dated before. The reason it has been confirmed is because the new Adventure Time book coming out soon may have details on their relationship, and their relationship obviously can’t be aired on TV because some states of America (and countries in the world) are against same-sex marriage and relationships.
But yeah, they have indeed dated before.
Can we also talk about official Bubbline art drawn by Natasha Allgeri, former character designer and story board artist for Adventure Time, and now Showrunner of Bee and Puppy Cat!?
