'Painted Oceans' Will Put 7 of the Greatest Street Artists in the Middle of the Ocean

Shepard Fairey, Futura 2000, Tristan Eaton, How & Nosm and London Police will paint murals at sea.

Led by the creative vision of Tristan Eaton, PAINTED OCEANS is a feature documentary film that will follow seven of the world’s most renowned street artists as they set out to make history by painting murals this summer on the infamous Red Sands Sea Forts. Located off the East Coast of England, the structures are known for the critical role they played in the crusade against German forces in World War II, as well as fighting censorship in the pirate radio movement of the 1970s. Bringing together the likes of Shepard Fairey, How & Nosm, Futura 2000, The London Police and Tristan Eaton, each artist will be assigned a tower to render their respective murals. Set in a remarkably turbulent environment of extreme tides, decaying metal and unpredictable weather conditions, a “village at sea” will be constructed in the middle of the ocean in order to house the artists.

Working with The Port of London Authority, local nonprofit group Project Redsand and local logistics partners Designers Block, the film is created under the safest conditions possible and will also look forward to the future with efforts to provide additional care and restoration for the forts. The Kickstarter for the film launches today so if you would like to support the project or just learn more, you can head over to the official PAINTED OCEANS website here.
