This past weekend, Honolulu Night Market hosted the 5th annual Anti Canvas boardshort charity art event, and we went down during the set up to give you a look at tsome of the submissions.

IMG_0011

 

Hurley and Contrast Magazine presented the 5th annual The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity on Saturday December 21, 2013 at Honolulu Night Market: Rogue Christmas

 Proceeds benefitted Waves For Water and their efforts in the Philippines with victims of Typhoon Haiyan as well as the Hawaii Foodbank. Entry is free and doors open at 6 pm for the art show and silent auction.

The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity utilizes “sublimation” to transfer original artwork from 25 local and international artists onto a pair of Hurley Phantom boardshorts. This manufacturing method preserves the integrity and details of the original artwork and designs. Some of the top artists this year include John John Florence, Clark Little, C.R. Stecyk III, Tim Hendricks, Keoni Payton, Aaron Kai, Carl Pao and Dana Paresa. Please find a full list of artists participating in the 5th annual The Anti Canvas: a showcase of boardshort art for charity below.

#HNLNightMarket Spotlight: Above Reproach & other entertainment

Honolulu alternative rock band ABOVE REPROACH will be playing the Main Stage from 9:30-10:30 p.m. this Saturday. If you’ve never heard of these guys before, here’s a quick intro, in the form of a brief interview with bassist and singer Jake Lenchanko.

Give us a few words to describe the “vibe” of your music.

We have a rock sound that believes that everyone should have a equal voice in this world and that “not one is greater than the other.” We stand up for truth because we’re tired of the lies.

Who’s in the band, and what do they play?

Derek Barbadillo is our heartbeat of a drummer, Seth Lenchanko play the guitar and sings and Jake Lenchanko plays bass and sings.

What has Above Reproach been up to lately? Any albums, new music, shakeups?

We’re in the final stages of recording our debut album, “Radio Interference,” which will be out next year.

What do you think of Night Market and the growth of the Kakaako district?

We heard a lot of great things about Night Market and can’t wait to perform! It’s always great when new venues pop up that are family oriented too.

The Schedule:

JacqRiot: 6-7 p.m. on the Main Stage
jacqriot

Jacqueline Govan, an electro/r&b Los Angeles recording artist working on her first EP, The Riot is Here , brings her energy to the Night Market stage before a set at The Fix Saturday night.

Fashion Show by Salt + Sand: At 8 p.m. on the Main Stage

salt sand

ABOVE REPROACH: 9:30-10:30 p.m on the Main Stage.

#HNLNightMarket December Spotlight: The Anti-Canvas Art Show

We’ve got something very special lined up for this month’s Night Market: For the first time, Kakaako will be hosting The Anti-Canvas Art Show, presented by Hurley and Contrast Magazine. Formerly held at SoHo and NextDoor in Chinatown, the Anti-Canvas Art Show, now in its fifth year, is both a charity fundraiser and a showcase of exceptional art that has been “sublimated” onto board shorts (a manufacturing method that uses special inks to transfer designs onto the fabric and preserve the integrity and details of the original artwork).

Anti-Canvas Art Show 2011 @ NextDoor - Tracy Chan

This year, 25 local and international artists have been chosen, and their designs imprinted onto a pair of Hurley Phantom boardshorts. They include John John Florence, Clark Little, C.R. Stecyk III, Tim Hendricks, Keoni Payton, Aaron Kai, Carl Pao, Aly Ishikuni, Remi Mead and Dana Paresa.

Proceeds from sales of the unique boardshorts will go to benefit Waves For Water and their efforts in the Philippines with victims of Typhoon Haiyan as well as the Hawaii Foodbank.

Since 2009, the event has raised over $18,000 dollars for various charities.

The event starts at 6 p.m., so get there early for the art show and to place your bid on your favorite pair of boardshorts, which will be sold by silent auction.

Guest Blog: “Girlfriend Dates… Cicily Goes to the Honolulu Night Market”

 Kakaako Mural

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” 
― 
Eleanor Roosevelt

Over the summer, thanks to a girl’s night out, I discovered a monthly block party held in Honolulu’s Kakaako district.  It was here that I found our island’s hidden gem.  Tucked in between bustling Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, Kakaako is now home to a Hawaiian hipster’s paradise.

“Girlfriend Dates… Cicily Goes to the Honolulu Night Market”

http://www.divorcedmoms.com/blogs/sweet-cicily/girlfriend-dates-cicily-goes-to-the-honolulu-night-market

I ABSOLUTELY fell in love with the young, bohemian vibe of the Honolulu Night Market. It was as if, I was strolling through New York City’s artistic Greenwich Village or SOHO. As I walking through the crowds, I had noticed people were commenting on how “hip” the Honolulu Market Night Market had been.

Packed With Excitement

Earlier this month, I had noticed on my Facebook and Twitter feed, that there was another Honolulu Night Market evening, planned for the month of November. Realizing that my son would be with his father for the weekend, this single mama immediately called her best friend to make another “Girlfriend Date” for the Honolulu Night Market.

I live on the other side of the island and I am not too keen on driving into town. HOWEVER, I will ALWAYS make an exception, for the monthly trek to Kakaako, The Honolulu Night Market is an amazing block celebration, that ensures guaranteed fun, AMAZEBALLS food, live music, local art, shopping and mingling with Honolulu’s hip, young crowd.

It doesn’t matter if you bring a date, family, friends or you are riding solo, Kakaako’s Honolulu Night Market has something for everyone.

There is something intoxicating about the aroma from the food trucks, brightly colored murals sprinkled throughout the neighborhood, dancing to live music, seeing the latest fashions during on the runway stage and people watching while strolling the main street.

Much like my first adventures at the Honolulu Night Market, I had another great evening!  Not only did I have a fun night on the town with my best friend, I also managed to knock out some much needed Christmas shopping, with all the local clothing vendors, smack dab in the middle of it all.

Christmas is just a few weeks away and Santa needs to still fill a few more stockings, so you better believe I will be at the next Honolulu Night Market.  I LOVED that my favorite FILTHY FARMGIRL soap company, will be there, carrying over 95 different soaps at the actual Market, as opposed to only a handful at Whole Foods.

I am counting the days, till I get to eat Buenos Antojitos’ authentic Puerto Rican Shrimp Empanadas on my next evening out. As a former Miami girl, I must say, her empanadas were so AMAZING.  Before I left for the evening, I went back for seconds because it was THAT GOOD.

For all my single Honolulu folks out there, the Honolulu Night Market is a great opportunity to meet new people.  While sipping on some libations, in the “bar” area, I made friends with some surfers visiting from Sydney, Australia.  By the end of the night, I even had an invite to check out a film festival, in China Town, after the event. What better way to spend a Saturday evening!
