"This piece was inspired by the Kabuki dance, "Renjishi", which tells the story of a proud lion father who pushes his cub into a ravine to teach him strength. In this illustration, that scene is taking place on the Pali Highway."

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.
