Aloha, my name is Joseph Paʻahana [aka UVAV]. I am an artist, designer and filmmaker, from Maui, living on Oʻahu, where my professional and personal artwork is rooted. My career has given me a solid foundation in illustration, design, screenprint, film, animation and user interface.

My work embraces analogue and digital technology to assist in crystallizing complex ideas into energetic, yet serenely focused imagery. By melding naturalistic textures with geometric forms, in often vibrant colors, I seek to blend ancient ideas with modern aesthetics.

I also continue to collaborate with groups and individuals to create engaging art and design.
