FANTADELIC

BUFFALO KEAULANA style













Buffalo Keaulana
Richard “Buffalo” Keaulana Patriarchal Hawaiian Surfer/Lifesaver and Son of MakahaIt’s good to be the Mayor of Makaha, especially when you’ve given rise to a West Side dynasty now in its third generation. Richard Keaulana was born (1935) in Honolulu, his family settling in Makaha while he was still a young boy. He learned to surf in the gentle rollers off Waikiki, eventually graduating to the level of beachboy during the 1950s.
Dubbed “Buffalo” by friends due to a large head covered in copious amounts hair the color of adobe, he was considered one of Hawaii’s most naturally-talented surfers. His smooth style, switch-stance skills and nose for the pocket made him an annual favorite at the Makaha International contest, an event he won in 1960 (Keaulana captured six top four finishes in the contest between 1957 and 1965). Built with the sturdy frame of a Polynesian warrior, he was also considered by many at the time--including Greg Noll--to be the world’s best bodysurfer.

A consummate waterman, Keaulana was named Makaha’s lifeguard chief in 1969, a position he managed for the next two and a half decades (in 1972 local officials erected a statue in his honor in front of a library near Makaha). Buffalo’s Big Board Classic—a surf contest and beach party held at Makaha is now in its 28th year and has become a community mainstay. Two of his six children have gone on to noteworthy careers in surfing: Brian, a world class waterman and big wave surfer; and Rusty, a three-time world longboard champion (1993-95).

ROBERT LONGO








Robert Longo (born January 7, 1953) is an American painter and sculptor. Longo became famous in the 1980s for his "Men in the Cities" series, which depicted sharply dressed businessmen writhing in contorted emotion.Robert Longo was born in 1953 in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Long Island. He had a childhood fascination with mass media: movies, television, magazines, and comic books, which continue to influence his art.

Longo began college at the University of North Texas, in the town of Denton, but left before getting a degree. He later studied sculpture under Leonda Finke, who encouraged him to pursue a career in the visual arts. In 1972, Longo received a grant to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy. Upon his return to New York, Longo enrolled at Buffalo State College, where he received a BFA in 1975. While at Buffalo State, he studied under, and was likely influenced by art professor Joseph Piccillo. At this time he was associated with artist Cindy Sherman, who was also studying art at Buffalo State.

While in college, Longo and his friends established an avant garde art gallery in their co-op building, the Essex Art Center, which was originally a converted ice factory; the gallery became Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center. Through his gallery efforts, Longo met many local and New York City artists. Longo eventually moved to New York City to join the underground art scene of the 1970s.
