PangeaSeed Foundation, the international marine conservation organization, is thrilled to announce the conclusion of its inaugural partnership with the Napier City Council, Resene, and Alternative Arts Initiative to create a series of Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans in the coastal town of Napier, New Zealand. This international collaboration of concerned organizations and artists took place from March 10-21, 2016, and creatively beautified the surrounding area of Napier, while bringing awareness, collaboration, and inspiration to the community.

Multidisciplinary artist and friend of BBB’s Askew One recently got busy in his native New Zealand for another edition of the Pangeaseed “Seawalls” festival in Napier. The new piece features a massive colourful portrait and is entitled “Kaitiaki”, which is the Māori word for guardianship of air, land & sea.
The festival will feature the work of over 25 internationally renowned artists, coming together to paint for a purpose and give the oceans a voice via art and activism (ARTivism). You can follow @pangeaseed and @seawalls_ for updates and visit PangeaSeed.org to learn how you can help save our seas.
