PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls Project

April 23, 2014

My good friends at PangeaSeed are embarking on an awesome project that aims to get artists into the sea and spread awareness of our dying oceans by creating murals. The project is one of PangeaSeed’s biggest yet and I am absolutely exuberant to see this project come to fruition. More info on the project below:

 

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.

In collaboration with our friends at 1xRUN we are embarking on our biggest Sea Walls project yet. We’ve invited some of today’s biggest names in contemporary street art 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, 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.

Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a new approach to ocean conservation, marrying art and activism. The Sea Walls expedition will make a large impact and gain global media attention – with your help.

Natalie

February 4, 2013

February is here and with the new month comes a new animal to be revealed from the Clintprints Bestiary.  I’d like you all to meet my good Friend Natalie:

Natalie WEB

Natalie is a Chambered Nautilus. She tends to live a lonely life in the depths of the Indonesian oceans near Bali. Sometimes it can be tough to find friends in the deep oceans and even more difficult to find others that are like you when you are a creature as strange as a nautilus. Turns out that Natalie is also looking for a good home and would love to be framed on your wall. She is house trained and doesn’t require water changes (because she’s made of paper).

She can be purchased at Nakatomi in a package containing a 12×12 print, a 5×5 print AND a sticker all for just $20. She is available for purchase now by clicking the following link:

She is also available at Parts and Labour in Austin.


Happy New Year

December 31, 2012

A new year is upon us and what a fantastic year 2012 was! I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who has purchased a Clintprint at any point or has supported this little enterprise in any way. Thank you all!

Clintprints produced more work in 2012 than any other year and 2013 looks like it will be even busier. There are a lot of very exciting projects coming up very soon. They will begin almost immediately in the New Year. Until then I’d like to share with you all a little Clintventure…like, an adventure that Clint goes on…Clintventure. In early December Clintprints visited Miami for Art Basel and a little recreation. Check it out:

Please excuse the music, it’s the best royalty-free song I could find on the youtubes. 😉


PangeaSeed

June 4, 2010

Each year PangeaSeed puts together an awesome event called “No Fin, No Future” where artists contribute their work to a great cause and are featured in an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. No Fin, No Future 2009 was a huge success and featured many incredible artists such as Brad Klausen, Dave Kinsey, Arik Roper and Rob Story.

This year I will contribute to the cause along with many new artists and it will surely prove to be a huge success. I am super excited to be a part of this great cause and hope to contribute to future events. Here is a sample of my contribution:

My poster is a 3 color screenprint with metallic silver and is 18×18. They will be available shortly on Nakatomi.

Here is a little info about PangeaSeed:
