way of living in the City of Smiles, the legendary tattoo artist shares his insights about Thai boxing, walking
around the grandeur temples, the colorful Tuk Tuks and of course, tattoos.. Shout out to our good friend

Cukui Presents: Angry Woebot - The root of my smiles.
February 23, 2012

Save The Date for Angry Woebot! His focal medium is acrylic paintings on wood and canvas. Using minimal
colors and detailed character design, these paintings are usually comprised of stressed out emotional
pandas. The pandas tend to represent the story of struggle.

Aaron Martin was born on the island Oahu 1977, Hawaii. Most of his childhood was spent growing up and
moving from Southern California to Nevada before finally landing back into Hawaii during his Junior year in
high school. In 1999 a car accident changed everything; this life-threatening experience inspired him to
leave the island once again, this time to Seattle, Washington. Inspired by the rain and being indoors, he
started playing around with different art mediums again. He then left back to Hawaii with a new perspective,
Aaron had his first show in 2002 and has not stopped. He has showed in galleries up and down California,
the east coast, and even in shows that have traveled from the U.S. to Hong Kong.
