COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA STREET ART: ALOHA KE AKUA by DAVID ROTHMAN

Aloha ke Akua: To recognize ke Akua (God) as the supreme being, to acknowledge His hand in all things, and to be appreciative of His many blessings. Aloha: To love others as one’s self and to do so unconditionally, living a life of charity, compassion, and forgiveness towards others.                                                                                                            Artist David Rothman: https://www.drothmanart.com                                                       Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/davidrothmanart/

He can usually get a mural of this size done in about two days, but as you can see, he had serious storm weather to contend with on and off for a couple of weeks. It’s summer in Florida.

He painted the whole back wall with brushes.

DR used Hawaiian professional surfer Sunny Garcia as his inspiration. Though SG’s not what the mural’s ultimately about, it seems fitting that someone with this reputation “Garcia has been a controversial figure, depicted as both volatile and easygoing by those who have met him. He has served prison time for tax evasion and been arrested for fighting. According to ESPN, his nickname Sunny was given to him by his mother, due to his cheerful disposition as an infant. He is known as a tough competitor but also someone who owes success to the anger he feels when surfing, which he often takes out physically on his competitors,” ~ is seemingly seeking redemption in the “God is Love” theme.IMG_3412DCIM100GOPROG0015844.IMG_3639IMG_3666IMG_3663IMG_3661IMG_3652IMG_3648DCIM100GOPROG0015886.IMG_3668IMG_3667IMG_3679

Swirling ocean. Life. Movement. Energy. The artist lives and breathes what he creates…

The black and white really adds a layer of ‘tempestuousness’ to the water.

This shark in black and white just looks a bit more fierce.

A special shout out to Jazzy’s for supporting local art and helping to bring Cocoa Beach to its rightful place of being a Florida town worthy of featuring international artistic talent. And here’s to hoping that more Cocoa Beach businesses will “Catch the wave!”
