The Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery in Waikiki has announced the Top 10 semi-finalists for its second annual Made in Hawaii artist competition! Hundreds of Hawaiian residents submitted their artwork for consideration, and these ten talented artists will be moving on to the next stage of the contest. They now have the chance to win an offer for a year-long contract with Park West Gallery, the world’s largest art dealer, and an exclusive three-month exhibition at Park West Gallery on the Waikiki Beach Walk.


The 2022 Made in Hawaii Top 10 Semi-Finalists are:

Hilton Alves


Jay Dee (ESK8)


Michael Jimenez


Rusty Johnston


Kayla Napua Kong


Nathan Neil


Kealoha Pa


Kristine Provenza


Beth Stephano


Crissia Vaughn

The next step is to determine the contest’s Final 3 contestants by popular vote.

An exhibition featuring artwork by all 10 semi-finalists will open at Park West Waikiki on Tuesday, November 1 and close on Tuesday, November 15. Visitors to the gallery can browse original works from these incredible local artists every day from 11 am to 10 pm and vote for their favorites on convenient digital kiosks.

The three artists with the most votes from the public by the time the gallery closes on Tuesday, November 15 will be the Final 3 artists for Made in Hawaii 2022. They will move on to the final round of the competition where a panel of local and international judges will select the ultimate winner.

Last year’s Made in Hawaii winner, Oahu artist Chris Sebo, has signed with Park West Gallery and an exhibition of his art is now on display at the Waikiki gallery.

“There is an incredible talent pool in Hawaii,” said John Block, Executive Vice President for Park West Gallery. “Our annual Made in Hawaii contest has been a great way for us to engage with and support the local artist community, and we can’t wait to share the works of these 10 amazing artists with our collectors.”

Park West Hawaii, located at the famous Waikiki Beach Walk, is open daily from 11 am to 10 pm. For more information, visit or call 808-859-4871.
