Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is an ongoing street art festival taking place in the island of Cozumel, in the Caribbean Sea off the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. The street art festival, on its second installment this year, was created by PangeaSeed, an international organization that collaborates with internationally renowned artists and environmental activists to raise public awareness and education surrounding the conservation and preservation of oceans and marine life. By creating large-scale murals the festival hopes to focus attention on various pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing and promote the importance of long-term sustainability of natural resources. The festival will also economically benefit the small island by bringing in tourists, given that tourism is the main economy of Cozumel.
This year PangeaSeed invited 30 world-renowned contemporary artists from across the globe to take part in Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans.
