HawaiiArt.com has recently teamed up with photographer Michael Cromwell from the Big Island of Hawaii.  Michael Cromwell is widely known for his stunning macro botanicals – whether photographed out in nature or contrasting against a black backdrop.

Hawaiian Still Life

“Cactus Flower” and “Hibiscus Unfurled” photos by Michael Cromwell


But Cromwell’s photography is more than just a photo; he explores the beauty of nature / still life photography in a combination with a realm of other mediums including paint, textural elements, and collage.  While some of the work is done post-image, Michael Cromwell will often compile actual physical elements into a textural collage BEFORE taking the photo, adding many more layers authenticity and creativity.


Hawaiian Photo Collage

“Juxtaposition” and “Ascension” photo collages by Michael Cromwell.


Michael Cromwell’s photography is a delightful mix of classical and contemporary – with traditional processes while pushing the boundaries of today’s creativity.  His artwork is available on HawaiiArt.com – offering a wide selection of different print options for each piece – including print on Canvas, Metal (aluminum) and Giclee Paper.  HawaiiArt.com is also happy to take CUSTOM orders for any of Michael’s work – so if you don’t see a size or print option on our website that you’d like, just shoot us an email with your request to info@hawaiiart.com!

Hawaii local artist Curt McManus has mastered the craft of handmade Hawaiian-style carvings.  He specializes in carvings into bone/fossil, shell and Hawaiian woods; most of his work is then strung into necklaces.  Practicing his artistry out of the Big Island of Hawaii, Curt is able to accurately portray truly authentic traditional Hawaiian/tropical designs in the forms of fish hooks and local animal shapes as well as his more contemporary collection of shapes such as the Open Heart design.  We offer quite a few of his professionally handcrafted designs for sale on HawaiiArt.com.  Take a look at some of his unique work below and click an image to see more details about each design…

It’s always exciting find fresh young talent in the Hawaii art industry. Just the other day I was contacted by a relatively new Hawaii photographer, Cameron Brooks, who is hoping to share his passion of Hawaii’s beauty in an “elevated” way. Take a look at his introduction video:

Cameron specializes in aerial photography, which as you can imagine, can become quite pricy – but it sure seems to be rewarding to both him and the viewers of his work. To learn more about his fundraiser project and watch his video again, click HERE.

…and just maybe you’ll be able to buy some of Cameron’s work on HawaiiArt.com in the near future…stay posted.

New Art on HawaiiArt.com!

Aloha to all!  As everyone may (or may not) have noticed, it has been awhile since we’ve really updated this blog…but that’s about to change!  Fresh new artwork, art news and inspiration is sure to be on the forefront regularly from now on!  And to start things off, we’d like to show off some of the latest works now available for sale on HawaiiArt.com.

Photographic prints on metal have been very popular as of recent – you have probably noticed while visiting many of Hawaii’s art galleries that they are a standout in color and depth.  So called “metal prints” are a beautiful way to display art on your wall at an affordable cost – they come ready to hang and are surprisingly light-weight.  If you have not seen the phenomenon of metal prints and would like to get more info on this, contact us at info@hawaiiart.com.  HawaiiArt.com is now offering a variety of pictures printed on metal (aluminum) showcasing some of Hawaii’s most beautiful and unique scenery.  Check out a few samples of the latest photography we have just added below…
