Hawaiian Graffiti OG "Prime" Says Aloha To Miami with Estria and Trek6 (Photos)

Like most Americans, we Miamians don't know shit about Hawaii. But luckily, we met John "Prime" Hina, a guy who started doing graffiti in Oahu in 1983, and is now in Miami working on a Heineken Mural piece with fellow Hawaiian graffiti pioneer Estria Miyashiro, and Miami's own Trek6. Prime told us about the origins, evolution, and future of street art in his home state, and he also explained the true meaning of Aloha.
