"Moriría Por Ti" is a call to action. With upwards of 100 million sharks killed annually for the global trade in shark fin, we must act now if we wish to save these incredibly important species from extinction. The oceans are the lungs of the planet and for over 400 million years sharks have balanced the delicate ocean ecosystem that all life on Earth depends on for survival.
However, in the past 50 years, humans have wiped out over 90% of the ocean's big fish, including sharks, due to destructive fishing and consumption practices. Vote with your dollar and do not support the trade in endangered wildlife. Together, via art and activism, we can help save our seas.
Proceeds from this print release benefit PangeaSeed Foundation's efforts to harness the power of art, science, and creativity to generate awareness, stimulate dialogue, change perception and inspire positive change around pressing ocean environmental issues.

As an artist, I feel honored to have my work contribute to this cause and help PangeaSeed further their goals. Back in 2014, I painted a mural on Isla Mujeres, Mexico that inspired this print project. I chose to paint one of the majestic Whale Sharks of that region with the text: ‘Moriría Por Ti’ which translates to ‘I Will Die For You’. I hoped to make a statement about how much marine life such as sharks are affected and threatened by human life, human greed and industrial activity. They are literally dying for us. Please join me in raising awareness.
