“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, we create large-scale murals that focus attention on pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing.
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.” – Tre Packard of Pangea Seed
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Vexta and 1xRUN.
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.
