When the tide went out, a street artist from Hawaii named Sean Yoro went out on a paddleboard to do his art. But his latest piece, which he did in the Bay of Fundy in eastern Canada, Yoro’s work not only looks amazing, it plays with water next to it. When the tide comes in it covers up the painting, but when the tide goes out the mural reveals a woman reaching up toward the sky. But the changing tide hides it and then reveals it every day. Check out this amazing piece by Yoro, who goes by his artist name, Hula. It is certainly a mural you need to see to believe.
Before environmental activists get upset, you should know that Yoro only uses non-toxic paint. That means the paint will not pollute the water that touches it. And while the mural in the Bay of Fundy will certainly last for two to three months, if the conditions are just right, it could be there for the next two years.
Yoro spent nine days painting this project. But he had to work quickly. Why? Because he could only paint the woman while the tide was out. And then he had to be fast because his work for the day needed enough time to dry before the water covered her back up.
Yoro is famous for his water murals. This piece is part of a series that have appeared around the world in places like West Palm Beach, Florida and Puglia, Italy.
Now this piece is just the latest incredible painting he has done. And it is in Canada.
The masterpiece was created with clean ingredients and is 30 feet by 45 feet in size. This huge mural interplays with the water of the bay, creating a giant spectacle that people are coming to see.
Although there are legal implications for his work, he has not disclosed exactly where the latest ocean mural is located. And his work had to be done very fast because the tide rose about one foot every 15 minutes.
During an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Yoro said, “Calculating the lifespan is very difficult because of variables such as sunlight and currents around the wall itself, but a safe estimate would have it lasting two to three months.”
Yoro had to do a lot of experimenting to find the perfect tools and paints that would complete his job. And he had to work while the wall was wet.
Yoro is a world-renown street artists who is self taught. He has a large following on Facebook. And as he grew up on the east side of the island of Oahu in Hawaii, he learned that his passion was for tattooing and graffiti.
Now the street artists takes ugly industrial surfaces touching water and uses his paddleboard to go out to them. Then he paints huge images of people and scenes on them. And as is his unique style, he puts tribal markings on their forms as a call back to his Hawaii roots.
