Hawaii-born painter and street artist Sean Yoro, also known as Hula, finds inspiration for his murals from the “silence beneath the surface of the water, when all you can hear is your heartbeat as everything else fades away.” The Brooklyn based artist paddles out to sea to scout inaccessible concrete walls and then uses his stand up paddle board as a floating studio to create his life sized portraits. Honestly, amazing.
