Keeping his balance on a paddle board, muralist SEAN YORO, also known as HULA, draws beautiful paintings while floating on the calm waters. His latest mural depicts a beautiful girl painted on an abandoned shipping dock. Her reflexion on the never-still waters turns it into such a realistic image.
The devoted artist and surfer, born in 1989, is originally from Oahu, Hawaii but is currently based in New York City. Influenced by artists of the Renaissance, HULA learned by himself the techniques he uses with his oil paints. In the studio, he works on a variety of different surfaces from broken surfboards to wooden panels.
All his paintings are portraits of women and have a hyperrealistic quality: due to the murals’ position above the water, they reflect perfectly into the waves.
