Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans Festival in Cozumel, Mexico (2015)

2015 (PangeaSeed) – PangeaSeed, the international marine conservation organization, in collaboration with 1xRUN, Tony Delfino, and World Art Destinations, is pleased to announce the second annual summer series of its groundbreaking mural festival, Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans. The festival, which creatively beautifies the surrounding area, while bringing education, connection, and inspiration to the community, will take place from July 17 – 26, 2015 on the Caribbean island of Cozumel, Mexico.

PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is the first movement of its kind helping to save our seas via public art and activism (ARTivism). The festival will feature 30 world-renowned contemporary artists from across the globe, collaborating to bring vital ocean environmental issues into the spotlight. The festival’s educational workshops will engage local youth to learn more about critical marine environmental issues affecting their home island, and what they can do to help save our seas. Sea Walls aims to educate and inspire individuals and communities to protect the planet’s most important ecosystem: the ocean.

“The power of public art and activism has the ability to educate and inspire the global community to help save our seas. No matter where you are in the world, the ocean supplies us with every second breath we take and life on Earth cannot exist without healthy oceans. With dwindling global fish stocks, rising sea levels, and widespread pollution, whether you live on the coast, in the city or in the mountains, we should all feel responsible for the health of the oceans and life that lives within it,” says PangeaSeed Executive Director Tre’ Packard.

The artists will have the opportunity to experience the various marine ecosystems of Cozumel Island, and learn from local experts about environmental challenges they are facing. In turn, inspired by their immersive field trips, the artists will create a series of 30 large-scale ocean-themed murals on the island to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of our ocean and the life that calls it home.

“IDEALISMO” SOLO EXHIBITION, QUERETARO, MEXICO (2014)

In September 2014 I was invited by Balneario tv to make a residence in the city of Queretaro, Mexico. As a final part of the residence I showed all the results of the experience in the “Galeria Libertad” in a show called “idealism”.

 

 

The word “idealism” is the representation of the idea, exists thanks to the creation of a person, is the principle of action, is the materialization of concepts like consciousness, the ideas, the subject and thought. The subject constructs the world: there are not things by themselves.

 

 

What about the “idealism” now ?, what happens when we live in a world where information invades ideas, corrupt us, hurt us?. How an human can arouse their “ideal” ?. “Idealism” has been violated, we dress as they want, make us eat what they want, make us sing to a flag what they want.

 

 

Therefore, this show is to see where we are as a society, what we lost or what we had won.

¡Viva el pueblo!

 

Cuando digo “pueblo”:

 

digo fiesta, cerveza, virgen de Guadalupe.

 

Cuando pienso “pueblo”:

 

canal de las estrellas, EZLN, Big Brother, Carmen Salinas.

 

Cuando siento “pueblo”:

 

futbol, fila del banco, buya sepulcral, grasa de animal.

 

Cuando saboreo “pueblo”:

 

carnitas, gorditas, pulque, guajolotes, huamiche, chela y horchata.

 

Pueblo  vilis, tripas, cabeza, buche, Nana Pancha.

 

Pueblo  traición, traicionado

 

tradición de pueblo.

 

Pueblo  partido,

 

y partido sin pueblo.

 

Pueblo  academia que pueblo sin el pueblo.

 

Pueblo  ignorado,

 

ignorante,

 

ignorado seguirá el pueblo.

 

Pueblo  vaciado, tanto pueblo al pueblo del pueblo

 

que vacío se quedó el pueblo.

 

Pueblo  chimuelo, callos de pies y manos,

 

pueblo encallado, acallado.

 

Silencio en el pueblo silenciado.

 

¡Hay! pueblo putas, de putas el pueblo,

 

¡Y qué putas con el pueblo?

 

Pueblo al pueblo con el pueblo

 

¿qué es el pueblo?

 

lo que pueblo.

 

Por eso

 

¡VIVA EL PUEBLO!

NÉO-MURALISME : DE L’AMÉRIQUE LATINE À L’EUROPE

Avec la Bourse du Travail et les Salons Mauduit, l’édifice de la Mutualité fait partie d’un ensemble de bâtiments emblématiques de l’histoire sociale de la Ville.

A l’invitation de l’association nantaise Pick Up Production et de l’artiste nantais Kazy Usclef, une vingtaine d’artistes d’Amérique du Sud, d’Espagne et de France ont investi le bâtiment durant tout le mois de juin. Peintres, illustrateurs, plasticiens, ils ont en commun, chacun à leur manière, une culture artistique fortement influencée par le muralisme, ce mouvement pictural né au Mexique au début du 20e siècle dans le prolongement de la révolution.

Les artistes donnent à voir l’héritage d’un mouvement qui, en croisant les techniques et matériaux (feutre, aérosol, bois, ciment) s’est aussi inventé de nouveaux horizons. Du muralisme, ils ont gardé la vision d’un art populaire, facilement compréhensible et des thèmes récurrents, comme la redécouverte des racines culturelles.

L’exposition présentée ici est le fruit d’un mois de résidence artistique, intense en échanges, rencontres et collaborations. Elle offre aussi à ce bâtiment une dernière vie. L’édifice sera détruit début 2015 pour laisser place à un important projet immobilier qui remodèlera complètement le visage du quartier.
