Item Description

Steve Wan, also known as Ekura One, is a commissioned graffiti muralist in the City of Los Angeles. Ekura One has contributed to hundreds of non-commissioned and commissioned works in and around Los Angeles County and worked with some of the most progressive and well-known LA-based muralists.

Ekura’s works span across the decade, with murals shown on television shows, movies, websites, and books (Graffiti LA by Steve Grody).  Upon Mayor Villaragosa’s election to office, he sought out Ekura and several members of his crew to become commissioned muralists for the City of Los Angeles, and eventually for the County. Since then, Ekura has been listed on the copyrights for more than 50 murals in the LA area and has had several gallery showings and live art performances.

Currently, Steve Wan is the Executive Sous Chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel but still spends much of his time honing his skills and talents with an aerosol can.

The board is titled “Breaking Barriers”.

Item Special Note

Kindly note, that packing, shipping, and handling are not included - winning bidders are responsible for pick up and/or shipment of their board, including costs to package/ship. Boards can be picked up at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel or the purchaser can arrange for shipping. If shipped, we often work with a local UPS in Dana Point as the carrier. They have years of experience packaging/shipping our surfboards and do a wonderful job. Before you bid, you may inquire with our UPS Partner at (949) 248-9150 to get a quote of how much shipping to your address will cost, as price varies due to location. If you arrange shipment with our UPS partner, we will handle the pick-up arrangement with them but will need to know your shipping address and phone number. They will be in touch directly to confirm packaging/shipment costs. The hotel does not manage this. If you prefer to use a different carrier, you will need to arrange pick up directly with the carrier from the resort and next steps.

Boards will be available for pick-up and shipping after Tuesday, January 2, 2024. Boards must be picked up no later than Wednesday, January 31, 2024.
