Support The Pangea Seed / 1xRUN Indie Go Go Campaign
100% of the proceeds from this release will go towards the Sea Walls Campaign.
Pangea Seed and 1xRUN are embarking on the biggest Sea Walls project yet. We’ve invited some of today’s biggest names in contemporary street art including Tatiana Suarez, Curiot, Hannah Stouffer, Meggs, Cinzah Seekayem, Tristan Eaton, Celeste Byers, NoseGo, Spencer Keeton Cunningham, Vexta, Aaron Glasson, Shark Toof and Saner to join us on our first-ever Sea Walls expedition.
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 and in partnership with the local government 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.
This piece of original artwork is signed by the artist.
Vexta is recognized in the street art scene as one of the leading female artists. This has been evidenced by the support she has received from influential players such as Banksy, who invited her to show along side him in London at the 2008 Cans Festival, as well as being represented and credited in his highly successful film, Exit Through The Gift Shop. She was also recently a feature artist the inaugural Outpost Street Art Festival in Sydney Australia in 2012.
Integral to Vexta’s practice is bringing art to the people on the streets and as such she has generated a large following in Australia, Europe & the Americas. She is most famously known for her stencil paintings and wheat-pastes which draw from cultural visual debris, her self taught aesthetic and an ongoing exploration of printmaking and painting. These works have been seen on the streets of Paris, Sydney, Mexico City, Bogota, San Francisco and New York to name a few.
Her iconic psychedelic, neon drenched artworks are influenced by a personal symbolism and a greater urban mythology which connect the dots between the personal and the universal, our waking lives & the dreams beneath them, between acute cultural commentary and aching beauty.
She has work held in major collections, including The National Gallery of Australia and recently she was included in the definitive Thames & Hudson World of Art: Street Art & Graffiti book (2012) as one of only 4 female street artists.
