In 2018 I was in Hawai’i and I had the chance to see the humpback whales in the wild. When Pangeaseed Foundation asked for coming back to the islands I didn’t hesitate in work in a piece based on these magical creatures. I also had the chance to see them one more time this year before starting the mural thanks to Pacific Whale Foundation. Maui is full of them right now for breeding season. Working in this piece has been really emotional for me.
