Aaron De La Cruz

My good friend Aaron De La Cruz has been over in Hawaii preparing for his solo show at Loft In Space and pretty well painting everything in sight! The show is called “Long Walk Home” and he has actually recreated his childhood bedroom in the gallery space!

The t-shirt Aaron is wearing is also a fundraising initiative for our next POW WOW HAWAII event! They will be on sale at his show and also available on the In4mation website shortly! If you’d like to support everyone involved with this event this is a fun way to do it!
