Beau Stanton Island Art Print Release


 PangeaSeed Foundation is pleased to announce the latest fine art print release for our educational print program, Printed Oceans. Featuring original artwork by supporting ARTivist Beau Santon (USA). "Island" is a limited art print edition that highlights our undeniable, yet often forgotten, connection to ocean ecosystems and the biodiversity that inhabit them.

The ocean produces over half of the world's oxygen that we depend on for survival and absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere. Covering 70 percent of the Earth's surface, the ocean regulates our climate, weather patterns and a major source of protein for billions of people around the world. We are tied to the health of the ocean and simply put, without healthy oceans, life on land is impossible.

Artist statement:
"Island" was originally conceived for the UN World Oceans Week hosted by the Explorer's Club as a virtual event last year. The work was created live from my studio with daily check-in video chats alongside PangeaSeed Foundation's Tre Packard in between lectures by leading marine biologists, climate scientists, innovators, and explorers. A bit humbling to say the least. The resulting image illustrates ecosystem interdependence, particularly the connection of life on land to the health of the oceans.
