Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

Bluefin Tuna numbers have drastically decreased in recent years due to overfishing and illegal fishing. Atlantic Bluefin Tunas are one the oceans greatest treasures with great value and responsibility in keeping the oceanic ecosystem balanced. As top predators, they are essential in population control of those lower in the food chain that could overpopulate and drastically affect the ocean environment. A 90’s reference remix from the Nickelodeon show Kennan & Kel, my mural has the tongue and cheek intent to be thought-provoking, making you stop and think as to what the underlying message is. YOU PUT THE SCREW IN THE TUNA is a message of taking responsibility for stabilizing the world and the ecosystem around us.
