In bringing the ocean to the public art scene, Hilton hopes to share the inspiration from the sea and waves that drives him with people all around the world. His aim in painting large 101 wave murals is to inspire people to take part in environmental preservation and have a greater relationship with art. With the sheer awe of his vibrant creations comes a greater appreciation of our greatest water treasure and the power of art itself.
The project includes a world record mural depicting the famous Pipeline wave, which was completed in October of 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 of painting complete.
Hilton has painted murals on Oahu, Maui, Los Angeles, Miami (Art Basel), Orlando, Houston (USA), Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Singapore. After participating on the HUE Mural Festival last year, in Houston, Hilton created an art collection called ‘Surf Street Art’, where he mixed his perfect waves paintings with the street art experience.
