Talk Story at Surf House Lawn with Christian Bendo

Talk Story at Surf House is a new monthly series hosted by Surf House at Turtle Bay. Each month, you'll have the opportunity to meet a different local artist and ask them questions only they can answer.

For the second Talk Story at Surf House - sponsored by Lanikai Brewing, we are pleased to introduce Christian Bendo, an Oahu artist who creates mesmerizing paintings and resin work on local Hawaiian woods. Watch in awe as Christian carves, paints, wood burns, and resins an original piece and talks about his work in this intimate Talk Story event.

The Signature Tumbler can be an Add-On to your tickets, or it can be purchased at the event. Must be 21+ to purchase.

More about Christian Bendo:

I grew up on the island of Guam but moved to Hawaii a few years ago. Hawaii quickly captured my heart.  Everything about this island inspires me to create. My art features the many beauties found here- from the local woods to the abundant sea life.  In my original pieces I use the local wood to carve my images which I later paint and add a colorful resin. My goal in creating these pieces is to allow everyone to experience the beauties of Hawaii.
It’s amazing that I get to do what I love and share these creations with you.
Mahalo for the aloha and support,


Christian Bendo Octopus
