    Hula, whose real name is Sean Yoro, is a Hawaiian artist base in Los Angeles, California who specializes in creating stunning murals in unique locations. While growing up in Hawaii he recognized his love for both nature and art, this later drove his art career. His work is characterized by its seamless integration with the natural environment, often utilizing water as a key element in his pieces.

    Hula’s signature style involves painting lifelike portraits of women on unconventional surfaces such as walls, abandoned structures, and even floating platforms. He skillfully incorporates the surrounding water into his artwork, using it to enhance the overall composition and create a sense of fluidity and movement.

    One of Hula’s most notable murals is titled “What If You Fly.” This particular piece showcases a woman floating on her back, her hair cascading into the water below. The artwork carries a profound message about freedom and our connection to nature.

    Hula’s art often explores themes of environmentalism and the delicate balance between humans and the natural world. Through his work, he encourages viewers to reflect on their relationship with the environment and the impact we have on it.

    If you’re interested in experiencing Hula’s artwork firsthand, you can find many of his murals documented online. His work has gained international recognition and has been featured in various exhibitions and publications.

    My name is Shaylee Irons I’m a senior at Lakes high school, class of 2024. I’m heavily involved in the art program hoping to make a living off my art after high school. I love all things involving art, fashion, writing. I would say I am for sure someone that could talk about anything for hours. Most of my writing will be focused on art and the current things actively going down in the art program...
