Maui art - Paia and Makawao through the eyes of artist Eddie Flotte

By
Real Estate Agent with Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers HRE# 58089 - RS

While I'm on the topic of Old Hawaii (yesterday I posted about Old Wailuku), I just have to give a shout out to Eddie Flotte, a watercolor artist who is passionate about the old buildings and people here on Maui.  Here's a unique video featuring his watercolors of Paia and Makawao towns.  This will really tug at your heart if you're the nostalgic type... it's about 6 minutes with a musical soundtrack.

 

Historic Paia and Makawao still retain a lot of the old-timey character from a bygone era, when sugar was king.  Maui has a rich history of immigration, which makes for a nice melting pot of nationalities and cultures.  All cultures are celebrated here and the best things of each gets knit into the fabric of the islands. 

If you're visiting Maui, be sure to spend some time in the north shore town of Paia, and then drive up Baldwin Ave to the cowboy town of Makawao - you won't be dissappointed.  Let  me know if have any questions about where to eat.

Great paintings... Would be fun to have a Paia time machine to see the town way back in Sugar Cane days when it was the biggest town on island through to the 60s and 70s when it was first being rediscovered.

Pete - that would be fun.  I'd go back to when Jimi Hendrix was here - that must have been interesting.

Elaine - glad you stopped by and enjoyed the video.
