HOLLYWOOD, CA, USA, July 29, 2022  -- iHollywood Film Fest (www.iHollywoodFilmFest.com) Founder and Festival Director Joyce Chow is pleased to unveil the official poster for 2022 with Los Angeles pop artist Andre Miripolsky during NFT Expoverse in Los Angeles. 

World-renowned artist Andre Miripolsky is known for his decades-long discovery and development of an iconic LA/Hollywood shark character that dons oversized sunglasses and puts on the ritz with a tuxedo bow tie and cane walking down the red carpet. Miripolsky explains, “the sharks began in 2000, but the attitude came in 2006, when a well-known Hollywood director, Betty Thomas, commissioned me to do a 6'x60' mural running the length of her lap pool. When I saw the pool and how close the mural would be to the water, I immediately thought of sharks coming out of the ocean donning sunglasses and devouring LA/Hollywood.”

Since then, Miripolsky had his Sharks run all around Los Angeles, capturing them mostly in large watercolor and oil paintings. Last year, Miripolsky dove deep into the digital art world and launched SharkTales Art as a way to introduce and help educate people about web3 and ocean conservation. 

Art, humor, and facts are woven together into visual stories that bring awareness to the fact that the ocean is our planet’s largest ecosystem. Sharks are older than dinosaurs, and yet +80 million sharks are killed every year for their fins. Ocean science needs our support. Art has the power to open up people’s emotions to new ideas. The collaboration between iHollywood Film Fest and Miripolsky is a natural fit on multiple levels and is a case study example of the supportive culture across the web3 community.

This weekend, collect a limited edition 2022 iHollywood Film Fest poster POAP NFT and signed physical print by Andre Miripolsky, from 12 noon – 4 pm, Saturday and Sunday, at NFT Expoverse at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  Special discounted tickets are available on Eventbrite at:

About SharkTales Art

SharkTales Art is a communal approach to art collecting and ocean conservation. We aim to use art in order to catalyze change by evoking new emotional feelings about sharks through collaboration, technology, and immersive exhibitions like aAquaverse. Scientists say sharks and rays are disappearing from the world's oceans at an "alarming" rate. The number of sharks found in the open oceans has plunged by 71% over half a century, mainly due to overfishing, according to a new study. Three-quarters of the species studied are now threatened with extinction. Through awareness, education, and action we can help reverse this trend. http://sharktalesart.com https://aquaverse.nyc
