Brazilian muralist Hilton Alves paints a curling wave on the wall of the Maui Oral Health Building on Lower Main Street in Wailuku on Saturday morning. The rendition of Honolua Bay is the third large-scale mural of Alves’ project to create 101 perfect waves across the world. His first wave mural was on Oahu and the second in his hometown of Sao Paulo. “As a surfer doing (painting) waves, it helps to understand this place, to make it as realistic as possible,” Alves said. The mural covers roughly 2,044 square feet of wall space of the building that is home to University of Hawaii Maui College’s dental hygienist program and JB’s Kitchen.
