Painting Portraits On Arctic Sea Ice

Hawaiian artist and muralist Sean Yoro (a.k.a. HULA) traveled to the arctic waters of Baffin Island, Nunavut, to paint a portrait of a local Inuit woman on the sea ice. This is the most technical and remote location that Sean has ever attempted a mural, and the wild forces of nature at the top of the world are unpredictable.

The film What If You Fly by Camp4 Collective, sponsored by The North Face and Directed by Renan Ozturk and Taylor Rees, is captivating. The artwork is beautiful. And the subject, well, watch and find out.

*Disclaimer: Yoro’s art on ice is intended to be an impermanent installation and removed nearly as soon as it’s finished. According to the film, he uses environmentally friendly, non-toxic oil paints.
