Street Art of Kaka'ako

During a recent trip to Oahu I had the chance to visit Kaka'ako for the first time in about five years.  I love what they have done with the place.  Not only have they gone through and made it quite a beautiful place with all the public art, they have added free neighborhood-wide wi-fi.  Talk about awesome!

The only thing that sucks about Kaka'ako now is the hipsters.  I will never understand why anyone wants to be a hipster or likes hipsters.  Damn, they are annoying.

However, without any further complaining, some of the awesome street art of Kaka'ako, Hawaii:


I do not know what the hell is going on with that. I think it is an alien from the Simpsons and it is currently on acid.


The Great Wave of Las Vegas... I think. Love the mixture of the Great Wave of Kanagawa mixed with a bad ass Geisha? Or some form of Kyoshi Warrior from Avatar: The Last Airbender.


That is some messed up anatomy and physiology class right there. It also stands to reason that the picture is really how a dog looks on the inside. I guess...


For some reason this calls to me - I fewl like it is something out of Cowboy Bebop... 

Just looked it up - I was right.

See what I mean? I nailed that one!


This last one is just cool due to the fact that it seems to have been pressure-washed or chisled into the siding. Pretty interesting way to make an impression... Get it? Impression? Damn it.
