New Seaside Murals That Change With the Tide by Artist Sean Yoro

“HO’I MAI”

Artist Sean Yoro, also known as Hula (previously), seems to be more comfortable on his paddle board than on ground, placing murals in hard to reach places, like underpasses and the side of a sinking ship. It is these seaside backdrops that he creates his hyperrealistic portraits, images of woman that peek above the water when the tide is just right.

The tide was the original inspiration for his new ship-based piece Ho’i Mai. The piece features a woman with arm outstretched, reaching beyond her position in the water. The piece’s title which translates to “Come Back” alludes both to her longing gesture and the tide that hides and reveals her face and limb.
