Enraptured by ocean waves and surfing, artist Aaron Kai returned to The Hundreds homebase in Vernon, California to paint his second mural. The Hawaiian native takes on The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Japanese artist Hokusai and imbues a striking pop art style for a unique rendition. Kai’s creative process for the immense painting at the streetwear brand’s warehouse is not premeditated. Instead, it’s devoid of projections and pre-sketches as the artist wields the brush while wrangling the finished piece in his head.

Due to the outstanding relationship between Kai and The Hundreds, the duo will team up for an upcoming collection that will spotlight the artist’s contemporary designs. Stay tuned by visiting The Hundreds’ official blog, here.
