Kerby Rosanes Planet Coral Art Print Release For World Oceans Day


To celebrate World Oceans Day, June 8, PangeaSeed Foundation is pleased to announce the latest fine art print release for their educational print program, Printed Oceans. Featuring original artwork by supporting ARTivist Kerby Rosanes (Philippines).

"Planet Coral" is a hand-crafted edition focusing on the impact of warming oceans and marine biodiversity loss. The ocean is home to somewhere between 500,000 and 10 million marine species but warming and acidifying waters, habitat destruction, and over exploitation are putting these very species at increasing risk of extinction.⁠⁠ "Planet Coral" reminds us that what you see now may be gone tomorrow and not take our blue planet’s spectacular biodiversity for granted. Together, let's make every day World Oceans Day.

Artist statement:

"Coral reefs aren’t just the home of the most diverse ecosystems in the world but also play an important role in providing millions of people with livelihood, food and coastal protection. With problems like warming seas, pollution, changing ocean chemistry and biodiversity loss caused by human activities, this marine paradise faces death and destruction in an unprecedented rate. The disappearance of coral reefs could lead into a domino effect of mass destruction in a global scale.

This piece aims to showcase how important coral reefs, marine ecosystems and the oceans are for the planet’s existence. With awareness and conscious effort, we can all do our part to help save our coral reefs from extinction, protect species that rely on them including us humans and nurture our oceans to provide a better future for this planet we call home." - Kerby Rosanes
