POW! WOW! TAIWAN / PART I

POWWOW-TAIWAN-01

Pow! Wow! Taiwan has officially begun! I’ve been out in Taipei for a week now, and it has quickly become one of my favourite cities (the food miiight have something to do with it). Here’s a quick re-cap of the first couple days. If you want to follow along on Instagram I’m posting to @Booooooom and you can follow @PowWowTaiwan as well.

We started with a tour of all the potential walls in the city (photo above: Madsteez and Brendan Monroe), which was followed by the official opening of the event. Yesterday we had a little rain delay, so most of the artists are getting started today. James Jean, Kristen Farr, and Mr.Ogay were among the artists able to put some work in, and you can see images of their progress at the bottom of this post.

Lots of images below, have a look!

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
