808 Urban Mural at King and Pawa'a

Walking back to work the other day after picking up the lose-money Gyotaku bentos, I passed by the 808 Urban mural on the corner of King and Pawa'a and realized that they had changed it. I have pictures of the mural on a previous post and it used to have a mermaid on it. I miss the mermaid, but this version is pretty awesome too. I think the two elements that remain from the previous mural, the tiki on the left and the turtle were done by artist Estria.

Shun-Wah: I know, it's such a shame. Because the wall faces in the opposite direction of the traffic flow, people in their cars don't normally see it. Next time you go to the Zippy's next to Washington Middle School, try take a walk out to the street and you'll see it.
