Waikiki Walkups is a composition of sketchbook drawings by Kent Myers. The Honolulu neighborhood of Waikiki is filled with these beautiful, old apartment buildings called "walkups" because they lacked elevators. Built in the 1950s by Los Angeles developers, these structures merge classic west coast and tropical vacation styles into something uniquely Waikiki. Large, overhanging eaves, lanais (balconies), natural stone and lava rock facing, integrated parking and flashy logos in vacation-themed fonts are among the common features. This artwork is related to Chop Shop and was printed together with it, united by the colors. The neighborhood decay depicted in Chop Shop drove me to the getaway island retreat—a Yin and Yang of life forces during covid, emerging from lockdown.
