Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

"Ocean pollution, the rise of sea levels, overfishing, loss of species - all due to the actions and inactions of humans. The longer humans (represented by Pluto and his bident) continue to ignore these actions, the Ocean (represented by Poseidon and his trident) will continue to push back in an attempt at healing itself. A constant battle until we change our actions and begin to heal and restore instead of destroy and ignore."

The Focus

Human impact on the ocean environment (pollution, sea level rise, overfishing, and biodiversity loss)
