Wyland Paints a Mural at the Hawaii Conservation Conference

World famous muralists “Wyland” is at the 2012 Hawaii Conservation Conference FREE Community event going on right now.

Here is a picture of him with Stuart Coleman of the Surfrider Foundation and Lihla Noori of The Hawaii Conservation Alliance.

Wyland loves to paint and I found it interesting that he had no problem with having young kids paint over the stuff that he had just painted!

Here’s a short video of Wyland talking about his presence at the Hawaii Conservation Conference.


Anuhea is going to be playing on stage soon on the 4th floor of the Hawaii Convention Center.
