Kaka’ako mural by Estria and Prime

Share Button

In an effort to support Kamehameha Schools’ movement to raise art awareness in Kaka’ako, graffiti artists Estria Miyashiro and John “Prime” Hina began working on a new mural Friday near the former Pipeline Cafe.

The pair, part of 808 Urban, drew a lot of attention throughout the day as photographers and those working in the area came to watch them work. By late afternoon, word had even spread to trolley drivers, who altered their Ala Moana to Ward Warehouse route to allow tourists to see the new mural. Miyashiro and Hina will finish their part by early next week, but other artists will start adding to the mural on Monday.
