Robert Reed's "Wacky-kiki: The Queen of America"

Robert Reed’s work is currently on display in Waikiki until October 13th at SPF Project, 729 Auahi St.  His artwork was recently reviewed in David Goldberg's article Balancing act featured in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.  The article explores the contrasting exhibits of Reed’s modern take on Waikiki and photographer E.Y. Yanagi’s retro approaching to the bustling area.  Reed utilizes common beach-like materials to form his piece titled "Wacky-kiki: The Queen of America."  Goldberg analyzes the deeper meaning behind Reed's art as a commentary on the modern culture of Waikiki that is here to stay.  Check out the entire review here.
