Sean Yoro: Taking Street Art to the Next Level

Sean Yoro is a street artist like no other. The Hawaiian artist has been creating magnificent, almost photo-realistic portraits of women on walls and surfaces around the world. Usually adjacent to rivers or lakes, Sean’s work seems to emerge from the water as he crafts it from the comfort of his paddle board.

Sean combines the beauty of portraiture with nature, He brings to life the world’s most unexpected canvases.

 

“The ocean and my connection to water has always been a main inspiration for my artwork. I had been working on some underwater photoshoots when the concept first hit me. I considered how fun it would be to work in the water, on a SUP board, instead of cooped up in my art studio. From there the pieces fell together,” explains Sean.

Each mural takes anywhere from 10 to 24 hours to complete. They begin like most portrait works – by photographing his subject. “I usually don’t try to plan every pose ahead of time,” he explains. He likes to keep things organic to allow for his subject’s personality to shine through. “I’ve always been drawn to the subtle emotions of portraits – the emotions that you can only get hints of – if you look deep enough.”

Sean’s work is now becoming internationally recognized and acclaimed, but the artist hasn’t been at it for very long. He first gained an interest in street art when he was a teenager and fell in love with graffiti around Oahu (hot link) where he lived. He began sketching in his notebook and didn’t take any art classes until he reached college. “I dropped into a fine art class and learned how to paint the human figure. From that point, the game changed for me. I moved to New York the following summer to chase my dreams of becoming an artist,” adds Sean.
