    The Aqueous Art Movement Is Here

    Aquaria is art. We have always seen the beauty inside our glass boxes. Now some individuals are making sure that non-aquarists are exposed to this beauty too.

    Aquaria is art. We have always seen the beauty inside our glass boxes. Now some individuals are making sure that non-aquarists are exposed to this beauty too. Enter The Aquaeous Art Movement, a group of fantastic aquascape artists that have recently shown off their creations at the Maverik Showroom in Shoreditch, London.

    The group is made up of James Starr-Marshall, George Farmer, Graeme Edwards and Dan Crawford. Earlier this month (November 4th – 6th) the group showed eight beautiful aquascapes that ranged from 8 – 160l.

    We’re thrilled that aquariums can be shown at this level today. We strongly encourage you to checkout the Aqueous Art Movement’s website and watch the videos below. Well done guys. Well done.

      A couple cool concepts in there. I especially like the 3 cubes that appear to be one aquascape.

      Eric I also think “aquaria is art” has a nice ring to it. 😉

      I wish I was this good. The planted tank aquasculpture movement has come a long way, unfortunately I don’t quite have their eye…yet. Dispite the fact that my companies name is Liquidart…. 😀

      Great blog btw, just found it today.

      There’s no “salty tanks” because it’s an aquatic plant display, UKAPS means United Kingdom aquatic plant society… It’s clearly outlined in their charter of intent.

    One Trackback

    1. […] I'm in the same boat as you BMW. My granddad died weekend before last, so I went to GA for the funeral and to take care of stuff there. I was gone a week. Came back and most of my fish are missing and the algae was so think the whole tank was just a furry green blob (there was no algae when I left). My wife was supposed to be taking care of it. I have no idea what she did wrong. The HOB filter wasn't even running it was so clogged. So yesterday I cleaned it out and found only 2 gray snapper, the oyster toadfish, and a sheepshead minnow alive. And they didn't look to be in good shape. I was so pissed I just took them and let them go at my dock where they were caught. I think I'm going to give up the local species and start something like this: The Aqueous Art Movement Is Here […]
