Hula’s Iceberg Murals

Remember Sean Yoro, the artist that uses his stand up paddle board to access isolated walls to paint life sized portraits? The Hawaiin painter, known as Hula, is at it again with a new series titled A’o ‘Ana, translated as The Warning. He recently traveled to Iceland, where he witnessed the extreme melting rate of glaciers first hand. The scary reality of climate change inspired two new murals, painted on acrylic sheets mounted on broken off icebergs. It’s just a matter of time before they will disappear completely, along the icebergs themselves. Brilliant, beautiful and impactful . . .

    These are absolutely gorgeous, and I can’t believe he does it all while on the paddle board. Iceland has always been on my travel bucket list, so wish I could get there before the paintings disappear.
