The Art Truck + Live Paintings by Roger Kelly

Created to make our world a little more beautiful, the Art Truck is back at Honolulu Night Market on April 19th!  With a collection of art pieces, this travelling outlet promotes the works of various artists.

We’re also happy to have Roger Kelly, who will be doing live paintings for night market attendees. An art lover and student, Roger’s body of work is about experimentation and exploration but he defines each piece as having it’s own “individual significance”.

We’ll have many new and returning artists to Honolulu Night Market this month, so be sure to check out the artist line-up at our new location in Our Kakaako!

Anti Canvas at Honolulu Night Market



Anti Canvas at Honolulu Night Market

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.



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.

This unique art event raised over $18,000 dollars for various charities since 2009.

Heres a look at a couple of this years submissions.
