MerDogs was completed in February 2017 by Lily Keenan.
‘Merdogs’ merges botany with fantasy. These happy sea dogs drift together in harmony with the ocean, each of their ‘tails’ are inspired by a different type of marine botany. This work draws on the folklore of mermaids who were traditionally half-human guardians of the sea. As we continue to pollute and jeopardise our oceans, this work can serve as a reminder of our seamless connection to the water that sustains us. This mural was done in support of Casa Congo, a sustainable development movement in Astillero Nicaragua that uses art and surfing to encourage a respect and love of the ocean. www.casacongo.org
