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.

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…
