Mural painting realized in Wynwood, Miami (USA) during Art Basel Miami for the collaborative project curated by Urban Nation and PangeaSeed Foundation, addressing the issue of climate change in conjunction with the COP21 Paris Climate Conference.
The artwork is about human aggressive attitude towards natural resources for economical purposes. This is intended in a double way as mere privatization and as the presumption of ownership towards lands, the environment and creatures’ life, with all the direct and indirect consequences.
With a marked connection with the place and its structure, the image ambiguously wants to involve the viewer on many levels, evoking the feeling of a balance that’s easily forgotten, of irresponsible prevarication, of a damage that’s well known but consciously not considered.
Urban Nation and PangeaSeed Foundation are pleased to announce their first ever partnership to create a series of Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans addressing the pressing issue of climate change and its impact on the life support system of our planet, the ocean.
This international collaboration of concerned organizations and artists took place in the Wynwood district of Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach (December 1 – 6). The one-of-kind activation coincided with the COP21 Paris Climate Conference (December 7-8) where world leaders gathered to deliberate on climate action policy to address this mounting global challenge.
Featuring globally renowned artists Aaron Glasson (New Zealand), James Bullough (Germany), Jason Botkin (Canada), Li-Hill (USA), Nevercrew (Switzerland), Onur and Wes21 (Switzerland) and SEPE (Poland) coming together to help give our oceans a voice via art and activism (ARTivism).
