Commissions:

Ho’omaika’i Projects: Ke Kilohana: Ward Ave.

The Howard Huges Coorperation development group commissioned paintings that paid homage to the Ko’olau mountain peak ke Kilohana. The image was reproduced as an art mural on a construction barricade surrounding Ke Kilohana in Kaka‘ako. The goal is to showcase the diversity of artistic styles and talent in Hawai‘i.

The original artwork Ke Kilohana by Nanea Lum is displayed at South Shore Marketplace in Kaka’ako
