A PangeaSeed Foundation public art program, Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans is committed to bringing the message of ocean conservation into streets around the world. With over 350 murals created in 15 countries, Sea Walls is a model of ARTivism on a global scale. During her recent visit to Cozumel, Mexico, travel and street photographer Karin du Maire aka Street Art Nomad captured several of the Sea Walls murals that have surfaced in this Caribbean island off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.
Pictured above is Mapache’s Stare, a mural painted earlier this year by South African artist Sonny Sundancer, featuring a pygmy raccoon endangered with habitat loss. Several more images of Cozumel-based Sea Walls murals follow:
