Twins
exploring the limits of art in nature


A unique collaboration of twin brothers Hula and Kapu, combining their individual crafts of street art and photography to create truly innovative artwork. The duo set out on daring adventures to create art in a variety of different environments, often spreading awareness on specific environmental issues linked to the locations. The brother's grew up on the eastside of Oahu until 2011 where they moved to NYC in order to cultivate and master their own creative fields. The twins are constantly driven by the common Hawaiian value of "Malama" or to "protect or take care" of nature.
Back in the studio, the brothers continue the collaboration with one-of-a-kind murals and gallery pieces. Kapu starts the process with his dramatic photographs which are then delicately layered with paint by Hula. The bond of the twins create a body of work unparalleled to many other collaborations between artists.
The duo's projects over the years have gained the attention of major publications with continuous features from media outlets such as CNN, The Huffington Post, Hypebeast, The Guardian, Juxtapoz Magazine, Daily Mail and Hi-Fructose Magazine. In 2018 Hula was awarded the title of ‘Forbes 30 under 30'.
