ice mural in the canadian arctic by Hula, aka Sean Yoro.
Hawaiian artist and muralist Sean Yoro (a.k.a. HULA) traveled to the arctic waters of Baffin Island, Nunavut, to paint a portrait of a local Inuit woman on the sea ice. This is the most technical and remote location that Sean has ever attempted a mural, and the wild forces of nature at the top of the world are unpredictable. But for Sean, the physical and creative risks are worth it for a chance at something new. “There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, What if you fly?”― Erin Hanson
*Disclaimer : Sean’s art on ice is always intended to be an impermanent installation and removed nearly as soon as it’s finished. He uses environmentally friendly, non-toxic oil paints.
