Artist Statement"This group mural by the Made Fresh Crew Ground Ops Team came together at the end of the week after being inspired and driven by the amazing artists of Sea Walls Santa Cruz, PangeaSeed Foundation, and the community that came together to support this massive creative production. Collaboration is vital, and we must come together with our fellow creatures on this planet to foster sustainability if we are to survive.
The darker, far side of the mural shows remnants of human waste, including stylized ropes, oil spills, and gassy gunk that has bleached the coral on one of the underwater reefs. As the mural continues, a story of hope is ignited as more life, animals, and movement swirl around an illuminated circle of marine beasts in a healthy ocean. We wish to inspire others to bring many hands together as we did, to continue telling this story of hope so that it can be the reality. Reading from left to right, instead of projecting the doom from the irresponsible habits we currently uphold as a society, we chose to change the narrative to manifest a brighter future."
