A PangeaSeed Foundation public art program, Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans is committed to bringing the message of ocean conservation into streets around the world. With over 350 murals created in 15 countries, Sea Walls is a model of ARTivism on a global scale. During her recent visit to Cozumel, Mexico, travel and street photographer Karin du Maire aka Street Art Nomad captured several of the Sea Walls murals that have surfaced in this Caribbean island off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.

Pictured above is Mapache’s Stare, a mural painted earlier this year by South African artist Sonny Sundancerfeaturing a pygmy raccoon endangered with habitat loss. Several more images of Cozumel-based Sea Walls murals follow:

The largest park built under an underpass in Canada, Underpass Park is also an exuberant open-air street art museum. The outstanding graffiti and street art that grace the park’s columns were fashioned with support from StreetARToronto aka StART, Mural Routes and the Pan Am Path. The mural pictured above was painted by Montreal-based Jason Botkin. Several more images I captured last week — while visiting Toronto — follow:
