The Kahala second collaborative print with mural artist Kamea Hadar features his artwork of goddess-like female figures. Although Kameas work is based in traditional portraiture, it has evolved off of the canvas to large scale murals and installations that be found in cities around the world.
Kamea, who is also Co-Lead Director of POW!WOW! Hawai'i, describes his inspiration for the Goddess series as captivating female figures symbolizing the perfect human forms we strive to be. While looking in every direction, we are surrounded by one another and also by nature. The lei poo, or head lei that each figure dons is made up of native flora and represents the land it grows from. Like rain water falling from a mountain top, flowing hair cascades from underneath the lei to the top of another figure, representing the cycle of fresh water and of life.
