POW! WOW! Hawaii has teamed up with California street artist Tristan Eaton to paint a mural for Versace. Centered around the Italian fashion house’s iconic Medusa logo which first made its mark in the fashion world in the ’80s, the mural exhibits Eaton’s use of pastel colors alongside his adept skills with the spray can. Transforming the walls of Kaka’ako into a psychedelic rendition, the legendary logo is further emphasized by Eaton’s pop culture-inspired detailing — looking to formative lines and opaque layering in its vibrant techniques. Supported by Montana Cans, the mural took five days to create using aerosol cans for the most part. Check out the images above for a closer look at the dynamic piece and follow Tristan Eaton on Instagram for more of his work.
