Aaron Kai is a Hawaiian mural painter who creates eye-catching pieces with an intriguing take on pop art style. His latest work is inspired by the waves he's experienced while surfing and the early work of a Japanese artist known as Hokusai appears.

Aaron Kai's mural makes use of vibrant colors and a cartoon-like design that translates Hokusai's iconic original well, staying true to many of its features while incorporating his own style at the same time. The Hokusai work it's based on, titled the 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa,' uses more subdued colors that are complemented by its use of detail, while Aaron Kai's rendition implements a street art style that makes it suitable for the warehouse for the clothing brand 'The Hundreds' where it is shown in Vernon, California.
