34 Marine Protected Areas Mural by Cinzah and Botkin in Napier, New Zealand

Artist Cinzah Merkins is a resident of Napier. In 2016, he co-produced the Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans festival organized by the PangeaSeed Foundation. 29 worldwide artists participated in this campaign to raise awareness of critical ocean issues. Cinzah worked alongside Jason Botkin to create a 427 foot mural on the bay-facing side of the National Aquarium of New Zealand. The painting is a blend of Māori legends and huge endemic sea creatures. The goal was to address the importance of Marine Protected Areas.
