If funded (There are only a few days left!) Tristan and 12 other world renown street artists will travel to the Isla Mujeres where they will swim with endangered Whale Sharks and Manta Rays. Afterwards the artists will create murals around the city to help raise awareness and educate about the oceans and the needs for these endangered species.
The 1xRUN sponsored project needs your help for it to happen and you can find a multitude of donating possibilities on PangeaSeed’s Indiegogo page. This is a completely non-profit campaign and all proceeds will go directly to the artists and saving oceanic wildlife.
Samantha French (USA)
Born and raised in north central Minnesota, Samantha French graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2005. French’s current body of work explores the idea of escape, the tranquility and nostalgia for the lazy summer days of her childhood. The series is inspired by Samantha’s own reflections and memories of her childhood summers spent in the lakes of Northern Minnesota. French actively exhibits her paintings and is included in many private and public collections throughout the country while her work has garnered extensive international and national press. She is a full-time painter and keeps a studio in Brooklyn, New York.
