En Plein Air with Christian Enns

Wishing you so much joy and special memories this holiday season! It's hard to believe it's December already. Today marks two years since we opened our Hawi gallery and I am so grateful for your business.

This month's show by Christian Enns captures the dramatic beauty of the island. His work transports you to shorelines along the coast–places where you breathe deep, relax, and appreciate the moment. They offer the experience of recalling those wonderful memories, vividly documented in oil paint. 

An award-winning surfer, Christian, has a unique perspective and ability to create. Appreciating the richness of Hawaii’s landscapes from the water while surfing, he often captures them in plein air at the water’s edge. And he likes to work BIG. The scale of his work, his dramatic use of color, and the richness of his compositions, have all contributed to his bold, signature style. 

“The light and beauty is so powerful here—full of inspiration to fuel the potential to create great art. And I can head right out my front door to go surf. Since making Hawaii our home, my artwork has been featured in galleries throughout the Islands, in solo exhibitions, and it has been collected worldwide. From landscapes to dreamscapes, I am constantly answering the call to create. Living life to the fullest and creating art that represents that experience, is my favorite thing to share with you.” -Christian Enns
