"Deep Seads" Series explores the physical limits of both art and artist in hopes of raising awareness for the fight to save Earth's coral reefs. Hula begins by creating artificial reefs, which help jump start marine growth, and transforms the concrete and metal structures into murals by free diving to the ocean floor.
The physical and mental challenge proves successful as the figures are completed in the depths and can be left to one day turn into thriving reef sites filled with homes for thousands different organisms. All materials used including the pigment sticks are eco-friendly and safe for marine ecosystems.

While artificial reefs help combat some current problems, it is by far not the only solution we need to resolve the full set of issues happening with our oceans. Learn how to take action here http://ocean.panda.org/
