About this Art:
This painting in particular symbolizes the importance of keeping our ‘āina or land, clean. We have the absolute privilege to call this beautiful Earth our home. Everyone should be taking care of it because there’s no planet b. When you can, participate in beach cleanups or go to the beach and create your own cleanup :).
The ocean is an important place to me because as a surfer, I grew more connected to the ocean. I feel that as people, we have a responsibility to take care of our planet and ocean. I use micro plastics sourced from the shores of O'ahu and incorporate it into my designs to create an art pieces. Getting these micro plastics off the beach, we are making a difference for our future gens.
