Colin Redican, a Hawaii-born artist, studied at The Art Institute of Chicago, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Although he has worked as a freelance artist on O’ahu since 1996, his commissions–both residential and corporate–have taken him to the U.S. mainland and abroad. Drawing, painting, and sculpture are the media that make up the core of his artistic background.
From the large-scale mural to the intimate portrait, Colin’s work is recognized for its quality irrespective of the project’s size. The most recent commission of Colin’s can be seen at the new Whole Foods in Kailua where he has done the large mural above the seafood department, a 3 panel mural near the coffee bar, the window graphics, as well as other design work throughout the store.
Other commissions have been the creation of paintings for the Grand Waikikian, a new tower at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, as well as the 2011 & 2017 Buzz's Original Steak House Calendar, and a beautiful new original in the front entrance at Haleiwa Joe’s. Colin’s studio is located in his home in Kailua, on the windward side of Oahu, a place from which he draws inspiration from the area’s natural beauty and accesses Honolulu’s vibrant community of artists.
