Pow Wow Hawaii

My good friend Jasper Wong (host of our Small Victories show in Hong Kong) is at it again! He has organized a wonderful event called Pow Wow in Oahu, Hawaii and I get to fly out there and be a part of it!

Pow Wow Hawaii art show event

Jasper and I will be joining international artists Will Barras (London), Meggs (Melbourne), Wu Yue (Paris), and 123Klan (Montreal), as well as local artists Prime, Ekundayo, and Kamea Hadar.

The artists will be painting a venue called Loft in Space from February 16 to 19 and during this time the public is encouraged to come and interact with the artists while they work! The show will open the evening of February 19 with a huge celebration.

Following the event, a selection of the artists will develop graphics based on their experiences in Hawaii and a limited-edition capsule collection will be released in collaboration with Incase and In4mation.

Essentially it’s going to be the best vacation disguised as work EVER! I’ll be posting more about this as we get closer to the event but keep your eye on the POW WOW BLOG.

Below are a few of the hooligans involved!

Drones Capture Disparity Between Rich and Poor in South Africa

Lines6

Cape Town-based photographer Johnny Miller reveals distinct lines between rich and poor in a striking (and unsettling) series of photographs. Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored. Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
