About this project

THE LARGEST SURF ART MURAL IN THE WORLD

Artist Hilton Alves will partner with Hawyland Styles Gallery, volunteers and community members to complete the largest surf art mural in America and maybe even the world.

Born in 1980 in Santos, Brazil, Hilton began painting professionally in 2000. The artist brought his art to another level in 2004 when he painted his first mural. Hilton's public, commissioned and commercial murals can be admired in 5 cities in Brazil and on Oahu in Hawaii.

The concept of the mural is to bring the North Shore to the South Shore with an image depicting beautiful banzai pipeline, a colorful sunset and a sandy section where silhouettes of individuals will magnify the size of the waves. There is no doubt that this mural will reach ocean lovers, youth, and art enthusiast around the world. The final stages of the mural will include an interactive community art element where the young and old alike will have a chance to have their silhouette painted on the beach scene looking at the waves.

This mural is a celebration of Hawaii's surf culture and acknowledgement of Hawaii being an ocean lovers and surfers mecca for the world. This dream was born out of experiences Hilton has had with his Surf Art Kids Project.

Surf Art Kids is a social project designed to expose children and youth to environmental awareness and foster in them a respect and love for the ocean through art. Hilton has completed 13 murals on Oahu and has reached over 5,200 children through the project.

We are hoping that when the mural project at 1320 Kalani Street in Honolulu is scheduled, it will be completed within 7 to 10 days. We have approval from the building owner, landowner, building manager, affected businesses and key volunteers. We still need to raise funds, secure donations and volunteers, purchase supplies and book machinery.

In Hilton's effort to complete this approximately 14,080 square feet mural we will raise up to $12,000 in funds and/or donations to cover the estimated costs of the project.
