101 PERFECT WAVES - INTERNATIONAL MURAL PROJECT

Hilton wants to share the inspiration that comes from the sea and waves with cities and countries around the world. His aim in painting huge murals and planning activities with local communities is to inspire people to have a greater relationship with art and to take part in environmental preservation.

The project includes a world record mural depicting the famous Pipeline wave, which was completed in October 2013. This mural is the largest wave mural in the world and located in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. To paint this huge wall of 5 floors high and 100 meters wide, the artist used about 150 gallons of paint and it took only five days to complete.

The second mural was painted in January this year at Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo and Hilton is happy to be back to focus his art on the Hawaiian Islands and, this time, the beautiful island of Maui. In partnership with Made in Hope, Hilton will invite school kids and community members to paint a mini-mural with him on August 15th while he showcases come of this painting techniques.
