Artist Paints Stunning Murals While Balancing On A Paddleboard
Being able to paint lifelike murals is a talent in itself, let alone balancing on a paddleboard whilst doing so.
Hawaii-born painter and street artist Sean Yoro, aka Hula, uses a paddleboard to access potential canvases. Once he finds a suitable surface, Yoro balances on his paddleboard while he patiently goes about transforming the canvas into a stunning piece of interactive art.
Not only does Hula paint on walls, he has even painted a stunning mural on an iceberg. The artist used the water line as a frame and his figure is illustrated to appear as though it’s emerging from the sea. Hula told website The Creators Project, âäI painted my murals on melting icebergs as a representation of people already being affected by climate change and the need for urgency in responding.âä The fleeting condition of the mural, in that in a few weeks time they will melt, dissolve, and be lost forever, highlights the time sensitive nature of this issue. Yoro writes about the project on his website: âäI hope they ignite a sense of urgency, as they represent the millions of people in need of our help who are already being affected from the rising sea levels of climate change.âä
For legal reasons, the locations of Hulaâäs iceberg murals are undisclosed.
Hula’s current installation âä called Lewa âä is painted on an abandoned shipping dock and depicts a woman gently reclining as if at the edge of a swimming pool.
You can find more of his work on Instagram under @the_hula where the artist has almost 100k followers.
