Squids

Art at Large 2.0

Art at Large 2.0 is finally finished and as always I am so excited and grateful to be a part of it. I love that the University of Hawaii at Manoa's Art Dept is utilizing it's incredible skills and talents to add to the environment around campus. We *could* live with ugly construction barriers, but why? The arts beautify otherwise dull and depressing spaces and creates a sense of community when student artists and community artists work side by side. Which is a new part to this iteration of Art at Large, more students involved = more learning. More learning = better quality of life. Here's hoping I'll one day be able to get my own students involved! Chee!

Art at Large 3.0 is being planned as we speak! I really hope to be a part of it and maybe you can too! The art dept donates all it's time and talent but they still need something to paint with. Each iteration of Art at Large costs $2-3,000. To support go HERE and mention ART AT LARGE in comment. Every little bit helps and it means everyone can enjoy the arts! Mahalo!

Mural in Kaka'ako (Largest Ever!)

"Octopus Flying Through Space" is 40' x 100' and can be see in downtown Honolulu at 510 Piikoi st.

I am so excited about a project I recently finished in Kaka'ako on Oahu, Hawaii. Over a year ago as I was driving in town I saw the side of a building with some graffiti on it and long story short I was able to paint the biggest mural I've painted to date. It took over a year of sketches, emails and coffee-fueled negoiations but I finally got approval to paint a large rainbow octopus composition on the side of the building.

This is my final sketch for "Octopus Flying Through Space" and is located at 510 Piikoi st.&nbsp;

The wall took over four stories of scaffolding, two straight weeks of 12 hour days over my winter break (minus Christmas day of course) but I got it done! I am so excited and proud of this wall.
