Painted Oceans: Painting The Red Sands Sea Forts
THE MISSION: "To pull off the most ambitious and adventurous mural project in history. Artist Tristan Eaton has been given approval to paint the historic Maunsell Sea Forts with a team of world renowned street artists. The entire project will be recorded on multiple platforms, and will be immortalized in a full-length documentary film." (paintedoceansmovie.com)The artist roll-call features a splendid array of graffiti legends, including Shepard Fairey, Futura 2000, How & Nosm, The London Police, and Tristan Eaton himself. Gives a solid context to the phrase; "Go Big or Go Home!", innit?
The project is currently on Kickstarter with a pledge goal of US$200,000, due March 2nd, 2016. Check out the video below, and as well I've added a TV news-report which might help explain things a tad clearer (I particularly liked it when it's now mentioned to be "public art") ~ Enjoy!
Can the Red Sands Sea Forts be given a new lease on life? We hope so! Check out the clip from our recent feature on the BBC. Tristan Eaton Shepard FaireyPosted by Painted Oceans on Friday, January 29, 2016
