In March 2017, PangeaSeed Foundation brought together an amazing team of artists and crew for the latest edition of the groundbreaking international public art movement Sea Walls. Over 20 renowned global artists came together to paint for a purpose and give the oceans a voice via art and activism (ARTivism).
PangeaSeed Foundation, in partnership with the Napier City Council and Alternative Arts Initiative, presented Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans in Napier, Hawke’s Bay. This event, in its second year, ran from March 19 to 26 with the creative participation of 26 internationally renowned muralists.
Artists, volunteers and project partners from countries around the world including the U.S., Spain, Russia, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand, volunteered to paint large-scale murals addressing pressing ocean environmental issues. The artworks extended beyond environmental problems by providing visual solutions identifying the eradication of key trouble issues.
