Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2013 Official Video

The full length Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2013 video has arrived! It’s kinda devastating to watch this sunny footage in the dead of winter but at least it will heat your face.

It’s kinda wild to think about the amount of art that has been produced in this one small area of Honolulu over the last few years. An artless area of the city has been completely transformed into a mecca for public art. This is my favourite art event every year and the really exciting thing is my friends have plans to bring this event to other cities now, so this is only the beginning.

If you missed it, I shared most of the 2013 murals in a giant blog post here. Enjoy the video below!
