Waikiki Beachcomber’s Elevator Flower Art

“What began as a decorative concept became a story,” Erin Ibarra tells me when we meet at the new Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger where she’s hand-painted a different native Hawaiian flowering plant into every elevator alcove. The vertical order of these larger-than-life illustrations corresponds with the altitude at which each plant naturally grows. Now complete, it’s a 24-mural story. And the name of the artwork? Elevation. Read more here in TRAVELLER.
