In several houses, these artists created their vision of what was the leiv motiv of the festival: environmental issues related to the oceans. As inspiration different artists will take the seabed of the Riviera Maya and those will be the ones eventually represented on the walls of the houses in Cozumel.

Cozumel houses facades have become the canvases for 30 artists committed to the environment and that will put the artistic touch to the environmental awareness.

The 30 artists taking part in the second edition of the Festival is Walls: Murals have the chance to know the most impressive places of Cozumel island, diving into the crystal clear waters that surround the island.
