Art in Wailea
Wailea is rich in art and artistic experiences. Many of the resorts offer a variety of art and craft experiences for their guests, including lei-making, painting, photography, and coconut husking. Some hotels also have an art gallery on the property and many offer an ‘Artist-in-Residence’ program that was pioneered here in Wailea! Please check with the individual hotels for current happenings.
If you are visiting, check your room or ask your concierge for a free visitor copy of Art Guide Maui. It provides a detailed listing of all the top art events, galleries, and artists on Maui.
Shane Robinson, Artist
The abstract photograph at the top of the page was created as part of the original art series for the Andaz Maui Resort. Over 60 images were captured on the resort property as a commission for the Executive Offices. Here in Wailea, the sense of place is both powerful and integral to the magical experiences we share.

The contemporary photographs capture the “naka” or inner vibration of the natural and built elements. Flowers, palm trees, the pool, and the iconic spiral wooden staircase are presented to the viewer not as one commonly sees them but as modern, abstract art.
Shane is a painter, photographer, and digital artist. His work is in the State of Hawaii permanent art collection and can be found in homes and businesses across the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
