Artist’s Gorgeous Mural on Sunken Ship Changes with Tide Levels


Last spring, we marveled over artist Sean Yoro (aka Hula) and his gorgeous seaside murals that were painted while he was on a paddle board. Now, he’s recently completed another stunning painting using the same unconventional practice.


Hula found an old sunken ship off the coast of Hawaii and transformed the rusty vessel into an aquatic art gallery with his piece titled Ho’i Mai (translation: Come Back). The larger-than-life artwork features a woman whose head and arm emerge from the water’s edge, reaching towards the sky.


This hyperrealistic portrait changes depending on the height of the tide. When the water is low, the woman’s body is visible, and it appears as though she’s floating a serene abyss.


As the water rises, however, her face becomes hidden, and the hand stands as an eerie beacon to those riding the ocean waves.


Here are a few more of Hula’s most recent seaside murals:
