R99 x Hilton

In partnership with Route 99 Hawaii, Hilton has created a very special and limited edition of hats inspired by his Surf Street Art collection. In 2016, after painting murals in a street art festival in Houston and the Miami Art Basel, Hilton created a collection of original paintings called Surf Street Art, inspired by the graffiti culture. The collection is based on similarities that connects surfing and street art, like camaraderie, creativity, freedom, among others.  These hats — as well as a series of his paintings [which you can find HERE] are the result of Hilton‘s experience in both worlds.

Inspired by painting murals in street art festivals.
Each Hat is unique and comes with a signed certification.

Artist and waterman Hilton Alves has long been a lover of the sea and water sports. Born and raised in Guaruja, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Hilton began painting professionally in June, 2000. His passion leads him to express the magnificent beauty of the aquatic world in paintings and big murals.

In 2013 Hilton created the 101 Perfect Waves – International Mural Project by painting the largest wave mural of the world, located in Kalihi, Honolulu. With this project he is sharing the inspiration that comes from the sea and waves with cities and countries around the world. His aim in painting huge murals and planning activities with local communities is to inspire people to have a greater relationship with the ocean and art and to take part in environmental preservation. This series of murals can be admired on Oahu, Maui, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at Sentosa Island, in Singapore and Ashkelon, in Israel. Total of 38 murals painted by date.
