Rise Above Plastics Art Show presented by the Surfrider Foundation Newport Beach & DAX Gallery
Costa Mesa, California – September 6, 2014 –Surfrider Foundation Newport Beach presents “WASTE-LESS” an art show and fundraiser, hosted by DAX Gallery. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for Surfrider’s Rise Above Plastics Program. Rise Above Plastics aims to help reduce the use of plastics in our communities. Their main focus is to reduce pollution by decreasing single use plastics by advocating for policies such as the ban on single use plastic bags in major retail stores. Worldwide, nearly 2 million single-use plastic bags are used each minute. Plastic bags are usually reported as the second most common type of ocean litter, after cigarette butts.
During the event, reusable tote bags will be available along with local artwork and raffle tickets for items donated by companies sponsoring the event. The group of artists showcasing, work in all different areas of art, ranging from nature photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media. These artists use a multitude of found, reused, recycled, and refurbished items to create beautiful pieces of art, while keeping the materials out of landfills. All sold work will have 50% of its proceeds donated to Rise Above Plastics, with the other 50% of proceeds going to the artist. This event is open to the public with a hosted bar and raffle tickets for prizes. Join Surfrider Foundation in protecting the coast and Rise Above Plastics!

Artist Hilton Alves will paint mural number three of his 101 Perfect Wave International Murals in Wailuku, Maui. The mural, planned in partnership with the non-profit Made in Hope, will be painted from the 14th to the 16th of August, in Wailuku. Each of the 101 murals will depict perfect waves from around the world and the 3rd will be based on the magic and beauty of Honolua Bay.
Made in Hope works to eliminate the exploitation of and violence against women and children. Its hope is to change the culture that cultivates violence by supporting preventative and restorative efforts that foster educational and sustainable economic opportunities for at-risk communities both in Hawaii and around the world.
This mural is part of a project, created in 2013, called 101 Perfect Waves International Mural Project. As an artist and a surfer, Hilton wants to share the inspiration that comes from the sea and waves with cities and countries around the world. His aim in painting huge murals and planning activities with local communities is to inspire people to have a greater relationship with art and to take part in environmental preservation.
The project includes a world record mural depicting the famous Pipeline wave, which was completed in October 2013. This mural is the largest wave mural in the world and located in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. To paint this huge wall of 5 floors high and 100 meters wide, the artist used about 150 gallons of paint and it took only five days to complete.
The second mural was painted in January this year at Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo and Hilton is happy to be back to focus his art on the Hawaiian Islands and, this time, the beautiful island of Maui. In partnership with Made in Hope, Hilton will invite school kids and community members to paint a mini-mural with him on August 15th while he showcases come of this painting techniques.
