Who doesn’t love saving Sharks and other beautiful aquatic wildlife with art?
I’m beyond excited to announce that Supersonic is officially part of the latest, incredible, PangeaSeed project to help save the oceans, “Sea Walls Expeditions: Murals for Oceans" and we need your help to fund this amazing journey!
What is Sea Walls?
Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a ground-breaking street art project created by PangeaSeed to bring the beauty and the plight of the world’s oceans into streets around the globe. By collaborating with internationally renowned artists, they create large-scale murals that focus attention on pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing.
Collaborating with 1xRUN, this is PangeaSeed’s largest Sea Walls project yet and they have invited 13 of the world’s best street artists along for the ride:The mission of the expedition is to offer these artists the opportunity to swim with and study endangered whale sharks and oceanic manta rays off the coast of the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico from July 20-28, 2014. Inspired by their interactions with these majestic giants in the wild, the artists will create a series of large-scale public murals on the island to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of these animals and the oceans. The murals will also highlight the benefits of ecotourism and long-term sustainability of natural resources.
To help out you can visit PangeaSeed’s Indiegogo page to donate - Anyone who donates $100 dollars or more will receive a special, limited edition “Supersonic” print from one of the acclaimed street artists (As long as you mention Supersonic when donating). This print will be available ONLY to Supersonic supporters making it extra special.
There are also a ton of other ways to support from $5 donations all the way to becoming an exclusive VIP guest along for the trip. You can find all the details on ways to donate here.

The phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures by Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. Between dream and nightmare, some strange creations born of a symbiosis between organic and mechanical elements, a meeting between fantasy, gothic and steampunk. Some very detailed sculptures in clay on a metal frame.
