Estria mural

The Academy is honored that Estria and Prime will paint a freezer container at the Academy Art Center at Linekona tomorrow afternoon. Want to see graffiti heavyweights in action? Estria, who organized the graffiti battle at Blaisdell back in May and whose roots are on O‘ahu, and Prime will get started at noon and work through Sunday. They recommend you drop by around 2pm. The duo will transform the freezer with a design they’re working on right now. The mural above is just to give you a taste of what’s to come. One of Estria’s priorities is doing community outreach. He sees graffiti as way not to teach kids how to tag their names but to connect to their communities.

In October, Estria held the Third Annual Estria Invitational Graffiti Battle in Oakland, where he is now based. For more on Estria, check this recent interview on Hyphen Magazine’s blog.

See you at Academy Art Center at Linekona tomorrow! Parking is available behind the building, entrances are on Beretania and Young streets.
