About

Tom Mehau is an artist from the Kamoku-Kapulena Hawaiian Homestead area of Hawaii Island. He is best known for his highly detailed pen and ink renderings, some of which can be seen in P.F. “Ski” Kwiatkowski’s book The Hawaiian Tattoo. While attending the HOEA arts program for Native Hawaiians in 2010, he made a natural transition into small-scaled carving under the tutelage of Maori Master Carver Stacy Gordine. His attention to line, form and detail has extended smoothly into this new medium. He is the co-founder of the Waimea Artists’ Guild, an association of professional artists whose intent is to produce art and promote education in their community.

Tom is a long time resident of Waimea, where he lives with his wife Beth and three of their six daughters.

    I love you Daddy, I’m so proud of all the work you’ve been doing.

  2. Mr. Mehau-

    OK, here’s what happened: I woke up last week from having a nasty little dream about
    being out in the middle of nowhere in a pine forest in the rain in the middle of the
    night, and it was dark and rainy and kind of scary, and I’m talking on an older
    cordless phone from the early to mid ’90s, one of those slightly clunky kind with
    the antenae….and I’m having this bad conversation on the phone with this guy about
    what an asshole I am for losing touch and I’m sorry and guilty and apologizing and
    the guy on the other end of the line isn’t particularly interested…and then I woke
    up.
    And so I grab the laptop and write an email to the guy and tell him all about
    the dream, and feeling like an asshole, and about how since the last time there
    was any communication I’d kind of fallen off a cliff in a psycho/emotio/mental
    kind of way, but hadn’t relapsed but had pretty much fallen into the abyss of self
    pity, dreariness, depression,etc. etc. etc. (suicidal ideations for $600, Alex)…
    And then I tell him the bullshit “things are so much better part”, about
    getting back on my feet, and getting away from making art since I get too
    fucked up about it, and about getting back to remodel work for sanity and money
    and structure and health, although creativity rears its ugly head every once in
    a while.
    And then I tell him about re-meeting a sweet girl from 25 years ago, and how
    she stuck with me through the bad hell time and how things got nice and she
    moved in and about how things are pretty good and about how we’re gonna throw
    a big party and get married on July 14th…
    So I finish the email and send it to the guy from the dream with the pine
    forest and the clunky cordless phone with the antenae and the rain and all
    that other crap…and then I don’t hear back from the guy… and of course,
    first things first, I take it personally, and then I thinks to myself :”Self,
    maybe OKFINE@whatever.net
    isn’t his email address anymore!”

    So, in conclusion: your website looks great, and the work does too….and I’m
    sorry to have been incommunicado…and if you’re in Berkeley on saturday July
    14th which ironically enough is Bastille Day….liberation/beheading…if you’re
    in Berkeley that day, on Durant Avenue, you and yours are cordially invited to
    come to the party…

    talk to you soon,

    Jonny Boy

    ps…from that picture on your website, you look entirely too fucking healthy and
    too fucking happy…so fuck you.

  3. remember that time I tried to email you and ended up posting a private email on your website because I don’t know if I have your email address, and then I posted it twice on your comments page? remember that?…..I’m really sorry about that.
