Calamari in Danger Zone

ArtistBinho Ribeiro

My art touches people through movement and surrealism. It leads people to imagine what they wish to understand. Art is universal and compels people to inquire: Do you like it or not? Does the art have meaning? Does it move you or just reassure you?

Art has the capacity to communicate on a much deeper level. It breaks barriers and reaches across cultures to the human heart, and, in this case, it highlights issues related to the ocean. Journalists are adept in finding key subject matter and revealing the details of dire situations. In The Outlaw Ocean Mural Project, the studies, facts and situations revealed in the journalism provide the artists with a heightened sense of inspiration. My art directly reflects subject matter Ian has covered.

So, it’s really cool. And I was pleased to participate alongside all the other artists. At times, it was challenging aligning the concept of the project with my art, but I’m very pleased to have been a part of this very important work.
