Hawaiian-born artist Sean Yoro (a.k.a. Hula), currently based-in New York, paints large murals on the building walls by the seaside. He transforms the otherwise dull and drab places into a spectacular scene with portraits of gorgeous women adorned with tribal markings, seemingly enjoying the calm seawater. Yoro, along with his painting material, has to carefully balance atop a paddle board while he paints. And despite of difficulty, he still creates beautiful and realistic paintings.
Enjoy this remarkable work of art.
You would never guess from Hula’s teenage affinity for tagging abandoned couches in his childhood neighborhood on Oahu, Hawaii that he would someday become the thriving Brooklyn-based visual artist at twenty-six years old that he is today.
With a background in fine art, Hula has returned to his street art roots in his latest series of murals that draw on inspiration from the ocean and the island culture of which he grew up. Using unexpected mediums like abandoned urban walls and broken surfboards, Hula’s murals are truly bringing the sea to street.
