"Island" was originally conceived for the UN World Oceans Week hosted by the Explorer's Club as a virtual event last year. The work was created live from my studio with daily check-in video chats alongside PangeaSeed Foundation's Tre' Packard in between lectures by leading marine biologists, climate scientists, innovators, and explorers. - A bit humbling, to say the least. The resulting image illustrates ecosystem interdependence, particularly the connection of life on land to the oceans' health.
- Beau Stanton
Working in a variety of mediums, Stanton’s work takes the form of large-scale murals, mosaics, stained glass, and multimedia animations. Heavily informed by historic ornamentation, mythology, and the classics, his work seeks to draw parallels between past narratives and contemporary human issues such as climate change, environmental conservation, and post-industrialization. The imagery and themes are always site-specific and closely tailored to the locale of the artwork, involving research and scouting of the surrounding area to create work that is a direct response to its environment.
Creating large-scale public artwork for the past 10 years, Stanton has completed murals and art installations across the globe in cities including New York, Dubai, London, Rome, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Detroit, Berlin, Miami, Amman, and Nashville. Notable project partners include Times Square Arts, National Coalition Against Censorship, The Explorers Club, The US Embassy to Italy, Wynwood Walls, Kiehls, Converse, and The Atlantic Magazine.
