Aquarium Art

Omar's "Contessa with Squid"
We're very excited to announce that Omar's painting "Contessa with Squid" has found a home at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in their recently opened exhibit called "Tentacles".
The collection not only features live specimens of octopus, squid, and various other cephalopods, but also has ancient, historical, and more modern art and sculpture inspired by these wonderful creatures.
They also commissioned San Francisco Bay Area artist Nemo Gould to create kinetic sculptures for the exhibit using found objects. Check out the video below to get an glimpse of the cool stuff he made.
