Art knows no frontiers… It can be expressed in many canvas to amaze and invite us to different places. In Puerto Vallarta, artistic life is at the galleries and along the sculptures of the Malecon, but it also lives along the streets of our beach town!
There’s no doubt:art lives in Puerto Vallarta, and it causes lots of reactions, from just watching at it to get more involved and get the real message. That’s what makes greater the artistic experience!
Therefore, Restore Coral Mural Project saw in Puerto Vallarta the perfect canvas for beautiful murals with a great message: the importance of coral reefs and the preservation of the marine ecosystem.
Restore Coral is the first Mexican campaign of social innovation aimed at this mission: Mexican reef is the second greatest of the world because it sustains 25% of the sea life… But nowadays we have lost more than 75% of coral surface area. If we don’t do something about this situation, we’ll lost all of the ecosystem.
In addition to technological and scientific projects, this one wants to raise awareness through art. The murals communicate with shapes and colors how important is the sea life for us.
With Restore Coral Mural Project, Puerto Vallarta has brought together urban artists from many places, who have showed all their creativity and colorful designs along the streets of the city, receiving all the attention of locals and tourists.
With an interesting fusion of styles, the murals remind us the greatness of sea life: the whales that visit Puerto Vallarta during winter, the unique corals along mexican beaches, all the traditions, stories and legends around life by the sea, among other treasures.
