"This painting shows the familiar site of Kalakaua Ave in Waikiki, with its classic statue of Duke Kahanamoku." ~ Shin and Saori Kato.
A lively portrayal of the popular street lining Waikiki Beach called Kalakaua Avenue with the famed Diamond Head crater in the backdrop, printed on aluminum by local Hawaii artists Shin and Saori Kato.
The art of Shinichi and Saori Kato pops with vivid color, bold graphics and the streets of Oahu. Inspired by the island’s scenery the husband and wife team known as S’s blue approach their painting with a unique perspective, from behind the wheel of "The Bus". Shinichi, a driver for the Honolulu City Bus has a daily front row seat to the view that most people dream of. On days off he and his wife Saori would explore the island by motorcycle in awe of Hawaii’s beauty and together they found a passion for recreating the breathtaking scenes from the driver’s seat.
