Fifty Two Rusty Fishing Boats Painted By Boa Mistura To Help Conserve Marine Biodiversity

Boa Mistura – a Spanish public art collective, has painted fifty-two rusty fishing boats together with Caribbean fishermen and their families in the massacre river, at the border of Haiti. The town’s geography is a dangerous one. During Boa Mistura‘s arrival in the extreme northwest of the Dominican Republic, inevitably they found themselves in Monte Cristi, the region along the shore. But their journey essentially took place a bit farther west in a village called Pepillo Salcedo. The community that Boa Mistura visited and ultimately dedicated their newest palettes to — housed more than 50 rusty boats and families that showed mollusk-infested hardships rather than the sparkling, bright parrotfish that nibble on algae below.
