Street art meets Monaco … and the Prince

Street art meets Monaco … and the Prince

Port Hercules appeared to be covered with graffiti at the weekend as nine urban artists spray-painted their personal takes on the urgent topic of saving the oceans.

Instead of adorning the walls, the nine works were captured on canvass, each one telling its own tale about the seas, and destined for auction to the highest bidder later in the day for the benefit of the Prince Albert II Foundation.

A tenth work was a collaboration of passers-by and HSH Prince Albert himself, who added his own touch in person to the painting. The colourful and popular event with such a noble purpose had been five years in the planning. The Prince Albert II Foundation, while involved with many projects worldwide promoting bio-diversity and environmentalism, is particularly focussed on protecting the oceans.
