The Lo‘i Gallery

The land upon which the ASB Campus sits – and its surrounding areas – was once filled with lush loʻi kalo (taro patches), nourished by the Nuʻuanu Stream, which flows alongside. Just as the loʻi nurtures the kalo within, ASB’s Loʻi Gallery provides a space for artists of Hawaiʻi to share their talents with the community.

Twenty percent of sales from this gallery will benefit one of ASB’s nonprofit Kahiau partners, which include Child & Family Service, Kapi’olani Health Foundation, Kupu, Partners in Development Foundation and United Way.

The Lo‘i Gallery currently features the following artists. For purchases and inquiries, please contact the artist directly.

Saumolia Puapuaga Loi Gallery Artist

Saumolia Puapuaga

Saumolia’s artwork is a personal reflection of himself as a first generation Samoan-American. The primary foundation of his work is inspired by the patterns and colors found in nature and reflects the story of his triumphs, heartbreaks and love.

Saumolia was born in San Diego, California, but spent his formative years growing up in Kalihi on Oahu. In 2006, he began honing his craft at Kapiolani Community College. He then transferred to the University of Hawaii at Manoa and graduated with a bachelor's degree in fine arts in 2012. Today, you can find him painting along the shores of Hauula, where he currently resides as a full-time artist.
