When you read it's printed with oil from the beach it becomes more powerful. But it lacks that in communication.

I wonder if this is an ad though, or art.

It's on the fence. It's art promoting an organization.

Can a piece of art work as a ad? or can Ad's be works of art...?

Ads can definitely become art in my opinion.

For art to become an ad, it mostly needs some more communication.

I think the process of making art and a (good) advertisement is pretty similar for a long time in the process.

dudes, this is great. Ofcourse this piece of art is an ad. All paintings sold contribute to the cleaning of the Mexican Gulf. It's not just a print ad.

Great work. We'll see this in Cannes for sure.

Agree with JackM.

Lacks immediacy and stand alone relevance as it is.

The poster needs to tie back to the 'ingredients' of the poster itself.

This one is made for Cannes. What's the idea really? Who do you help with this 'art'? Who is going to buy this for 150!!! euro? It tell's me something i've learned in primary school. It's only made to win a design lion and that sucks big time.

you don't seem to get the subtle and philosophic dimension of it, don't you?

Great project which lacks absolutely nothing. "Gulf of Mexico 2010" in the right corner is more than enough information. Greets to Bruxelles.

Salamandos chill out man. It's just an idea that isn't that brilliant made to score on international advertising prices. What does it tell you? That oil and water do not mix?
