What an Amazing Artist, World Record holder Hilton Alves Creates Mind-blowing Murals depicting perfect Waves.

With the goal to paint 101 murals depicting perfect waves around the world, the Brazilian artist Hilton Alves successfully completed his third mural in Hawaii. Using about 40 gallons of paint, Hilton started on August 14th and finished the 2,044 square feet mural in three days on the 16th. This mural depicts the perfect waves and the magic of Honolua Bay, on the island of Maui. According to the artist, “Most important was the positive response we got from the local community of Wailuku. People loved this work and we have proposals to paint other murals on the same avenue to revitalize the place." ( Make sure you check the video on 2nd Page)

This mural is part of a project that the artist created in 2013 called 101 Perfect Waves International Mural Project and the project already includes a world record. In October 2013, Hilton painted the largest wave mural in the world, located in Kalihi on the island of Oahu. To paint the building five stories high by 180 meters wide, the artist used 150 gallons of paint and took five days of painting to complete. The second mural was painted in January this year at Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo, and was delivered exactly on the 460th anniversary of the city and included in the festivities.

With the participation of people from the Wailuku community and representatives of the non-profit organization Made in Hope, Hilton was able to complete the third mural in record time. Made in hope works to combat child abuse and exploitation of women's rights, as well as offers opportunities for educational and cultural activities worldwide. Besides Made in Hope, Hilton had the support of Wy's Galleries, Sherwin Williams, SeaSpecs and Service Rentals in Maui.

As an artist and surfer, Hilton wants to share the inspiration that comes from the sea and waves in cities and countries around the world. Through the mural project events and activities for local communities, Hilton hopes to inspire people to have a greater relationship with art and environmental preservation. "My goal with these murals is to raise awareness and inspire people about towards the preservation of nature, especially the oceans and marine life, as well as revitalize places with beautiful images inspired by the blue planet." commented the artist. 

Hilton has several mural projects in the making in Hawaii, several U.S. cities, and in Brazil, Portugal, Philippines and Singapore.
