Ocean Wildlife Conservationists PangeaSeed have once again gone to the streets with gorgeous murals to spread awareness of endangered ocean wildlife, this time in San Diego. Featuring 8 renowned street artists from around the world (Daleast, Tatiana Suarez, Phlegm, Persue, Zio Ziegler, Exist 1981, Fintan Magee and Nosego) large scale murals were put up around the East Village neighborhood of the city. These large scale murals are meant to beautify as well as educate about ocean conservationism. Check out many more photographs of the fantastic murals below.
Phlegmis a world-known cartoonist and illustrator. He is also well known for his self-published comics and highly creative street art. Phlegm’s work is distinctively detailed composed of odd figures and a narrative structure. His work inspires greatness and is even often inspired by graffiti where Phlegm transforms run down urban spaces and factories.
The name Phlegm came from one of the four bodily humours in ancient Greek medicine; blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm. Phlegm was believed to be responsible for an apathetic and unemotional temperament.
Phlegm was born in North Wales and he currently resides in Sheffield, UK – England’s Steel City. Although you can find his work across the world, most of it is found in the United Kingdom.
Says the artist - “The last wall painted on my stay in New York. Painted way down in South Brooklyn on Avenue U and East 28th. Thanks to Joe from Bottleneckfor helping me sort this wall out in the last few days of my trip”.
UK-based street muralist Phlegm has really outdone himself this time. Using his intricate drawing skills, he has created a three part piece that when combined features an entire world on the shoulders of one his characters. The image you see above is only a third of the completed image. Good news for his fans is that this will be released as a print entitled Civilisation soon.
