As the Artist in Residence at Four Seasons Resort Oahu, Nick Kuchar’s fine art collection is woven throughout the property, from the Artist-in-Residence exhibit to the adult pool cabanas and the Instagram-worthy Dr. Mai Tai’s swim-up bar. The Artist-in-Residence program, which launched in 2017, is a fine art gallery exhibition that celebrates Hawaii’s vibrant and diverse art scene and connects artisans with our guests for workshops and lectures. Kuchar, an admired Oahu-based artist, is renowned for his vintage-inspired surf and travel art. Known for working in a timeless mid-century modern style, Kuchar seamlessly intersects the past with a modern twist throughout his illustrations. Kuchar’s collection of work at Four Seasons is a “visual love letter to Oahu” and includes celebrated locations on the western coastline such as Kaena Point, Makaha and Pokai Bay. His nostalgic aesthetic draws inspiration from the early days of surfing and beach culture, including a soothing vintage colour palette made up of serene ocean aquas, and golden sunset yellows. When he’s not in his studio or hanging poolside creating art at Four Seasons, Kuchar can be found spending time with his family at the beach, surfing and enjoying Oahu’s breath-taking sunsets.
