Artist Sean “Hula” Yoro (@the_hula) first made waves in the art world by combining his loves of surfing and painting. 👋 In his first-ever mural series, he paddled out to paint along ocean walls. “There is rarely one process I use, but I enjoy the new challenges every site brings,” says Sean.
“Since the start of my career, I have always drawn my inspiration back to my Hawaiian upbringing in the unique melting pot of island culture,” says the artist from Kahalu’u, Hawaii. “One value that has always stuck with me no matter where I have moved to is the term we call ‘kuleana.’ It is the responsibility we are taught as kids to know your role and responsibility in society for the better of your community.”
