South Sea Arts Landscaping Featured in Honolulu Star Advertiser

South Sea Arts is already well-known for our work in authentic tiki mugs and Polynesian art and carvings. But not everyone knows that Gecko is versed in residential and commercial landscaping design too. He organically integrates woodcraft masterpieces into lush tropical settings to create a North and South Pacific oasis that rivals that of any 5-star resort on the island, yet with more authenticity. If you've visited the gallery in Makakilo, you know this. If you've visited Tiki's Bar & Grill, Teddy's in Haleiwa, or La Mariana (view portfolio) you can envision what South Sea Arts is capable of. But alas, this has gone unrecognized by those not in the know. Until today.

South Sea Arts is honored to receive a headline feature in today's (April 30) Honolulu Star Advertiser. Big mahaloz to Nancy Arcayna and the Star Advertiser for sharing the aloha. Below are the images (courtesy of Dennis Oda) from the featured article: Read More

Haleiwa Arts Festival 2017

Get ready to mark your calendars and set your smartphone reminders because South Sea Arts is to be featured at the 20th Annual Haleiwa Arts Festival on July 15-16 2017 at Haleiwa Beach Park. This will be Gecko's first appearance at the renowned annual affair. In honor of this fact he'll have some special works in store for those in attendance.

Kama'aina and malahini alike will have the opportunity to nab a one of a kine South Sea Arts creation. From limited edition tiki mugs and drinking vessels to authentic Polynesian art we expect it all to fly off the exhibition and into collectors' homes. Be sure to arrive early! Who knows, one of Gecko's prized surfboard carvings may make its way from our Makakilo studio into Haleiwa Town for the weekend.

Stay tuned for more updates to come at the summer months approach. If you want to reserve some custom work beforehand, contact South Sea Arts anytime to schedule a visit to our studio.
