ONO’U TAHITI GRAFFITI FESTIVAL - PART 6

Graffiti // Friday, May 16, 2014
With the competition over and all large murals completed, a group of artists headed on a day field trip to Moorea Island to eat, swim with sharks and stingrays, and soak in the tropical luxuries. As most worked on their murals for just about a week, the rest and relaxation was essential. Reflecting on our week spent in Tahiti we can genuinely say that the group of artists chosen to participate were some of the most humble, egoless and talented individuals we've had the pleasure to watch work.
