Self-taught artist Sean Yoro known as HULA, broke into the street art world
in 2015, when the release of his unique water murals became widely publicized. Growing up on the eastside of Oahu, Sean spent most of his time surfing, until his late teens when he discovered his passion for graffiti and tattooing. Working under the alias ‘Hula’ he moved to New York to pursue his career. Influenced by his love of the ocean, Hula took to the water to create semi-submerged murals, while balancing on his stand up paddleboard. Hula strives to bring life to empty spaces, usually working on shipwrecks, abandoned docks and forgotten walls. Merging his backgrounds in both street and fine art, his works entirely with oil paint and uses traditional techniques to create soft, female figures interacting with the surface of the water.
