Hawaii Art Truck Takes Works Straight To The Streets

Art Truck Hawaii

First there were tacos, then there were sweaters, now selling your wares out of the back of a truck just got a whole lot more colorful.

Big Banyan, a Hawaii artist collective comprised of local and international artists, created their very own "Art Truck" in attempt to "connect the creators of art to the appreciators of art." There's no route or parking spot where the truck displays their works, it simply drives "to wherever the people who love art are." (Locals, Follow them on Facebook to keep tabs on their exact location.)

The collective is adamant about bringing their artists's works -- students also display their work through Big Banyan -- directly to the people: no wholesalers or retailers required. By keeping the middleman out of the process, the group has been able to provide incredibly affordable art, keeping prices at or below $250. Art is sold on a 60 percent to artist, 40 percent to Big Banyan LLC consignment basis.

Hit the road, buy some art.
