SignalFuse jumped right into an awesome graffiti offsite at 1AM!

Here’s what SignalFuse had to say about their event, you guys rocked it! “We had an offsite event here with our team of 16. The majority of our group are engineers and they like to think they’re not creative, but they all had tons of fun and got their juices flowing in spite of their claims that they’re not creative. Maya and her team were welcoming, engaging and knew how to teach us squares how to get down with spray paint. We will definitely be going back and maybe even have them come into our next office to tag one of the walls for us. Thank you 1 AM Team!” SignalFuse Workshop! SignalFuse Workshop!

Street Art and Social Change: TWOONE in New Zeland

TWOONE

The wonderful, world-traveling arts and activism event, Sea Walls (from the Pangea Seed Foundation), aims to protect the world’s oceans via public art and activism. Currently underway in Napier, New Zealand March 11-20, the festival has an amazing roster of international artists painting away, raising attention and engaging discussion on oceanic protection. For this week’s article, we are sharing the beautiful mural painted by Japanese artist, TWOONE. A beautiful large slate grey wall with colorful flora that matches the surrounding environment strikes the tone. Central in the mural is the KOKAKO bird, native to New Zealand, and currently on the endangered species list. Good news is, population numbers are slowly growing according to resent research by the Department of Conservation!

Street Art and Social Change: Gearoid O’Dea’s Women of the Rising Mural

Le Chéile I Ngruaig 5

Irish artist, Gearoid O’Dea, recently finished a mural in heart of the capital city, Dublin, on the corner of South Great George’s Street. The mural is a tribute to Irish women who were directly involved in Ireland’s independence from colonial Britain in 1916. The country is celebrating the 100 year anniversary of this event. The independence began with the legendary Easter Rising event, also known as the Easter Rebellion, which was an armed insurrection in Ireland during Easter Week, 1916, against British rule. To bring more meaning to the mural, March 8th was International Women’s Day. O’Dea painted the faces of Countess Markievicz, Margaret Pearse and Grace Gifford-Plunkett. A large and powerful work celebrating Ireland’s independence and the crucial roles women played in the event 100 years ago!

Street Art and Social Change: Fintan Magee and Rising Waters

Fintan Magee 3

Australian artist, Fintan Magee, was hard at work painting in Puerto Rico recently at the annual Santurce es Ley Festival. For his contribution, Magee painted a young local boy from San Juan wading through thigh-high water with an iceberg on his back, inviting onlookers to ask themselves what our impact on the world’s environment could mean for those who live at sea level. There are a huge number of people around the world who live directly on the coast, and who’s livelihood is completely dependent upon the ocean. He writes, “Despite the low C02 emissions of small island states in the Caribbean; rising sea levels, increasing natural disasters and other affects of climate change are a huge threat to the small nations who’s economies are dependent on fishing, tourism and agriculture.”
