The story of The Story of Ka Makana o’ ka is an exhibit about a boy from Chicago going into a new world of Hawaii, experiencing numerous different lifestyles, vegetation, and people. Artist Trotter Alexander’s works addresses topics such as drug use, depression, infatuation, self-hate/love, racial identity, existentialism, and insanity. With a surrounding body of influences around him, Trotter has found his voice utilizing the forms of pop-art, street-art, doodle-art, and comic book /manga aesthetics surrounding him to create an explosive motif within every piece produced, taking these influences and reinventing them for his own story.
