This Honolulu Artist is Creating a Mural That Showcases Elements of Mō‘ili‘ili’s History
Mural, mural on the wall.
I ka wā mamua, ka wā mahope: The future is in the past. That’s the message emblazoned on the bottom corner of a new elaborate mural in Mō‘ili‘ili’s Old Stadium Park.
Local artist Luke DeKneef (@landrexd) partnered with the city and community groups and heard from hundreds of residents about what they wanted to see in the design. The completed wall is a creation story of sorts, weaving together elements of the area’s history.
See what you can spot, from the manu-o-Kū with squid in its beak to boxing gloves to a path to the underground caves, painted along the side of Kim’s Korea Restaurant.
