On the way back from New Zealand where he recently painted “The songbird pipe organ” mural, Phlegm stopped in sunny California to create another fantastic piece for PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans festival in San Diego.
With the focus of their activity being raising public awareness and education about the conservation and preservation of sharks and other marine species, Sheffield born artist created a mural that covers the subject. In his signature, illustrative style, using minimalist black and white palette, he created this mechanic shark with his iconic characters powering the weird creation. The image can be seen as a warning of what could our future look like if we don’t stop the shark fin market and start taking better care about marine life in general.
The mural can be seen on 320 16th st, in downtown San Diego, but you can check out more closeup images after the jump here and leave a comment about this piece or the theme of the project.
