Item Description

This beautiful giclee on canvas with custom koa frame (18" x 24") depicts several generations of Hawaiian men seated on a lauhala mat on the shore at Pu`uhonua O Honaunau. The tableau of men captures them sharing cultural traditions made by hand, like poi, cordage, fishing tools and the adz. 

EDWIN KAYTON has been painting, drawing and sculpting for over 35 years. He studied at the Museum Art School in Portland, Oregon, graduating in 1967. His style, influenced by the works of Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Velasquez, combines their strong use of light and shadow (chiaroscuro) with the bright pallete of the Impressionists.

The cultural renaissance in Hawaii, inspired by the voyages of Hokule`a, provide endless subjects for his palette. Frequent interaction with the Hawaiian community has resulted in thousands of reference photographs from which he creates endless compositions.
