Street artist David Choe gets forced to buff artwork in Kona Hawaii.
David Choe- “They tell me aloha means hello and also goodbye , so aloha to this mural it’ll be painted over by the end of the day, it got to live and breathe for 72 hours on the corner of pualani kuakini in KONA, no ack cracka jack. No matter how much hate exists for me and my art , it will never overcome how much love is inside me. The spirit of the Hawaiian nation is beautiful and healing and I’m only grateful to the people and for my time here , as axl sings “nothing lasts forever”
“There she goes , All my sins Whitewashed away , god bless the buff , the manager of the building let me hear the complaint calls, Here’s all the reasons “Black, deathly morbid , ugly , sickly , unchristian , too ethnic ”
Today’s lesson: don’t work when on vacation”
