1xRUN, Tony Delfino and WAD present PangeaSeed's second annual summer series of the groundbreaking Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans festival July 17-26 in Cozumel, Mexico. Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is the first movement of its kind helping to save our seas via public art and activism (ARTivism). PangeaSeed's second annual summer festival will feature over 25 renowned contemporary artists from across the globe collaborating to shine a greatly needed spotlight on pressing ocean environmental issues - while helping to educate and inspire individuals and communities to protect the planet's most important ecosystem: the ocean.

ABOUT Martin Machado:
My work reflects the time I spend at sea as a merchant marine, commercial fisherman, and sailor. I typically use a camera as my notebook while at sea, then recreate these experiences through the use of paint when back in the studio. On longer jobs, such as in the container-ship work, I paint in my cabin in what spare time I can find.

A current series has taken inspiration from 18th century etchings that were the result of South Pacific exploration by Europeans. My aim is to recreate the style of these historical works through ink on paper, while infusing imagery and ideas that stem from my own time at sea. In some works I sample from this canon, juxtaposing a historical figure perhaps, with a character I have met in my own travels. I hope that my art works touch on the complexity of a globalized economy and the effects it has on humans, animals, and the environment.
