Murals have a way livening up even the drabbest of city blocks. Whether it’s on the side of a dilapidated building or under a bridge, the infusion of color and art brings humanity to some of our society’s most industrial spaces. But while the vast majority of murals are on dry land, Hawaii-born artist Sean Yoro had a different idea.

Yoro took his artistic talent to concrete canvases that were normally unreachable by us land-dwelling creatures. To reach these unique spots, he began using an inflatable standup paddleboard and the natural power of rising and falling tides to paint watery murals. His art can be seen everywhere from Canada to Italy and he has no plans to stop.

Check out this video to see a few of the precarious situations Yoro puts himself in–including on the edge of a waterfall–to paint the perfect mural.
