Kelekona Keha | Kakaako, Hawaii
a note from the artist
It seemed to me that the light radiated from nebulous like a supernova of color. It started small and expanded as the evening progressed. Then I saw it, the dragon rising on a different plain than the rest of the clouds and I knew this was Nature behaving outside my comprehension and I stared in wonder. See how large the dragon is compared to the massive oil tanker at ships below it. The scale here was mind-blowing.
I am constantly in search of visual expressions of mother nature; scenes where she portrays herself in terms of life that we can understand. I've seen faces in stone, dancing trees, and a woman's figure beneath a sheet of ocean waves but I have never seen anything as mythical, magical, or massive as this.
The name Kelekona Keha comes from a Hawaiian translation of rising dragon. Dragon translates roughly to Kelekona. Keha translates to sky or heavens.

About the prints: I print on a premium substrate that is unparalleled in depth and luminosity. The material refracts light in such a way that light travels laterally through the paper as well as reflects to the audience creating a brilliant effect that many mistake to be rear illumination. Each print is then face mounted to acrylic and sandwiched to a protective backing. The artwork is then framed or a recessed mount is added to the back to float on the wall. I offer Tabacchino and other handmade framing options. Available starting 20”x40” 30”60” 36”x72” 40”x80” 48”x96” and custom sizes. Below are examples in 4” frames with and without liners. More arrangements are available. Liners are available in Black, White, Beige. See FRAMES in the menu above for more frames and liner options.
