Phil Sabado was born and raised in Molokai Hawaii, in the days where you treaded barefoot in the plantation villages and spent all your free time fishing, hunting, and cooking.

He now resides and paints on the island of Maui, and has been committed to creating art that is historically accurate, expresses the essence of Hawaiian culture, and depict his love for the nature and culture of Hawaii. He has been commissioned to do many public and private murals and is celebrated within the collector community.
