Sean Yoro: the stand up paddleboard artist | Photo:

Sean Yoro is an artist like no other. He says he paints "things on things." We say we love what he does.

Never mind the tides. Sean Yoro, also known as Hula, has created a series of murals just above sea level. Confused? The artistic process is not entirely orthodox, but it is certainly worth the effort.

Well, the artist from Oahu, Hawaii, and currently based in New York paints hyperrealistic portraits of women emerging from the water. Sean Yoro depicts women in industrial and abandoned spots.

Because his technique his only applied above sea level, he uses a stand up paddleboard to get to the perfect surfaces, to his "prime walls." The Hawaiian street artist says he is "borrowing a wall in the ocean from anyone".

"This piece [below] was inspired by the silence beneath the surface of the water when all you can hear is your heartbeat as everything else fades away. It's one of the many places I call home," explains Yoro.

Feeling inspired? Get an inflatable stand up paddleboard and acrylic paint, and let your creative side shine above sea level.
