Michael Beerens | Port of Toulon | France | 2021

Michaël Beerens was born in 1984.

As far as his art is concerned he combines his two passions: graffiti and underwater world. As a diver and underwater videographer, he developed a particular sensitivity to the ecological cause and the world of animals.

Filled with the energy of nature, he transposes the magic of the underwater world to the heart of cities. He wants to bring the grace of nature into the heart of gloomy concrete.

Michael Beerens | UPAW Festival | Monaco | 2021

In March 2021, the official presentation of his gigantic mural in the port of Toulon took place. This immense fresco dedicated to the sea, which today dominates the port of Toulon, was inspired by a dive by the artist in the Anse Méjean, a well-known place on the Toulon coast. Michael Beerens explains that his work echoes the interaction between light and the water motif that is particular to this Mediterranean site.

In July 2021 Michael Beerens took part in the fifth edition of Urban Painting Around The World. The UPAW is a well-known annual event on a theme related to environmental protection. Combining street-art and environmental causes, the ultimate objective of this event is to raise funds which will then be donated to the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, located on the Esplanade des Pêcheurs.
