about the project
 

 

How did the idea arise?

The idea developed from the union of two passions: the sea and urban art. The Montebelo crew, in love with both, decided to stimulate the awareness for the protection of the oceans through art.

So we met with the French artist Jean Faucher to support our project. Jean is the founder of Le M.U.R. and a figure of great importance for the history of the urban art movement in Paris. He encouraged us to make the project real and was very important for its conception.

What is the purpose of the project and the events?

The goal is to use art as a vehicle of awareness for the importance of the constant protection of seas and oceans and to raise money through the sale of the works on behalf of Surfrider Foundation.

While the events takes place it is a relaxed gathering for good people to discuss small things that can help to preserve the seas and the oceans.

The travels of the artworks

The artworks shall be accessible to everybody. After the works are created, they will be exhibited in the same city for some weeks. Then they travel to be exhibited during the next sessions. The works created in Paris were exposed in Rio. Then, the works created in Paris and Rio were exposed in Porto. The next possible stops are planned for Berlin and Vienna.

Urban art has the principle of being on the streets, breaking the elitist aspect of traditional art, which tends to be seen by few people in museums and galleries. With the journey of our works, the project seeks to turn this contact with art accessible.

Surfrider Foundation Europe

Surfrider Foundation Europe is a non profit organization, dedicated to defending, saving, improving and managing in a sustainable manner the ocean, coastline, waves and the people who enjoy them.
