Mayumi Oda’s “Golden Sea” diptych is part of her Ocean Series. Featured here on our men's western shirt, the “Golden Sea” print was inspired by Mayumi’s love of the ocean: “I learned scuba diving at Waikiki Beach and was fascinated with the Hawaiian ocean. The exhilarating feeling of diving was the closest thing to flying. My Buddhist name, Ekai, means Merciful Sea, so I wanted to dive into the bountiful ocean.”

The Artist: Mayumi Oda
Mayumi Oda is one of Hawaii’s most treasured and well-known artists. Mayumi's lifelong concern for the earth and her view of it as a source of healing and nourishment moved her to begin cultivating a farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. Born in Japan, for the past 20 years Mayumi has lived and worked in her home at Gingerhill Farm in Kealakekua. Growing up in Tokyo, Mayumi studied fine art and traditional Japanese fabric dying. Mayumi’s unique apprenticeship dying fabric for kimonos influences the color and composition of her work.
