The September 2017 earthquakes have devastated many parts of Mexico, affecting over 12 million people in 700 municipalities across central and southeast Mexico, tragically resulting in over 470 deaths. A lot of work has been done to recover, but there is still much to do. Mexico has experienced thousands of aftershocks since September 2017, and many communities are still rebuilding their lives.
You can make a difference. In a fundraiser collaboration very close to our hearts, Static Medium and artist Clare Toms have brought together an international group of artists to create a very special Limited Edition Fundraiser Print Set.
For this years Valentine’s Day – also known as the Day of Love and Friendship in Mexico, share the love with those in need through the purchase of this collection of limited edition prints by celebrated international artists Alex Garcia, Josh Keyes, Sylvia Ji, Monica Loya, Saner, Luis Sanchez, Miss Van and Clare Toms.
100% of profits raised will be donated to two non-profit Mexican organisations who are actively and transparently working to rebuild communities through specialised programs: Ambulante’s ‘Levantemos Mexico’ program, and Fondo Semilla’s ‘Women Rebuilding Their Communities’ fund – a program supporting the long-term recovery in the states affected by the Earthquake – Oaxaca, Chiapas, Puebla, Morelos, State of Mexico and Mexico City. Fondo Semillas is a non-profit organisation focused on improving women’s lives in Mexico.

“I’m excited to finally release the NØISE “State Violence State Control” 7” which features covers of two songs that represent our band’s resistance to the attitudes and policies of the current administration. We are proud of how we maintained the spirit of Discharge’s song “State Violence State Control” and Bob Marley’s song “Get Up Stand Up” but also reinterpreted the songs through our own stylistic sensibility. Working on the art for this 7” was a therapeutic way for me to address the current political situation and abuses of power while also nodding to the punk and hardcore music and art that sparked my interest in politics as a teen. I’d like to see more outspoken art and music in response to the state of the nation. If you aren’t already familiar with my band NØISE, comprised of veteran musicians Merritt Lear, John Goff, and Joe Cassidy, visit NoiseProject.com to either download or shop our 12” record featuring songs “Little Lions” and “Automatic.” – Shepard Fairey
PangeaSeed is pleased to announce the latest release of our ongoing Sea of Change: The Year of Living Dangerously – Vol. 4 print suite by guest artist Miles Tsang (Canada). The highlighted species of this edition is the iconic nautilus.
On sale Thursday, February 8th at 12pm PST HERE.
“When pondering our relationship to the world and its oceans, I often find myself thinking of our connection to nature, which is a force that encompasses us, preceded us, and will succeed us whether we acknowledge our mortality in its face or not. As a living fossil and scavenger that has gone unaltered by evolution for nearly 500 million years, the mysterious nautilus represents these abstract ideas, though it is often hunted by humans for its ornamental shell, leading to calls for protections and regulation to prevent endangerment in modern times.
My piece “Nautilus Grave” ambiguously flips this callous and common narrative, portraying the alien but genteel nautili as dominant entities in relation to the human visitors depicted, symbolizing mindful deference to (rather than thoughtless exploitation of) these fascinating creatures and the realms in which they thrive.” – Miles Tsang
