7-Eleven Hau‘ula Mural
On Saturday, August 26, 7-Eleven Hawai‘i proudly unveiled its first-ever mural, a project that not only added aesthetic value but also strengthened the sense of community pride. The mural, a collaborative effort led by local artist Jack Soren and his team, aimed to enhance the natural beauty of Hau‘ula while paying homage to its rich culture and history.
The Artist and His Mission
Born, raised, and residing on the North Shore of O‘ahu, Jack Soren is no stranger to the breathtaking landscapes and close-knit community that characterizes Hau‘ula. With a deep sense of connection to his surroundings, Jack embarked on a mission to create a mural that would not only beautify the exterior of Hau‘ula 7-Eleven, but also resonate with the local community.
Jack’s vision for the mural was clear: to amplify the existing allure of Hau‘ula while infusing it with a fresh burst of creativity. He recognized that his art has the power to transcend language and touch the hearts of both residents and visitors. Through this mural, Jack aims to rekindle an appreciation for Hau‘ula’s past through mo‘olelo (Hawaiian myths, legends) and enhance the community’s sense of pride.
