Pow! Wow! Japan: Event Recap

powwowjapan01

I spent the last couple weeks of October out in Tokyo to be a part of the first-ever Pow! Wow! Japan event. Met so many amazing people, some whose work I’d followed for years (like Dave Kinsey), and all the art produced was incredible. This event continues to prove to me that the truly talented people in this world are all the friendliest too.

This enormous 12-storey mural above was painted by Case (who you might remember from our film, Heavy Dreamers) and it was kind of insane because he was only allowed to use the lift until about 3pm everyday because a bus had to park below. Not sure how he finished it in time but I believe he spent 47 hours on it total. He gets the award for largest mural in the history of the Pow! Wow! event.

Case and several other artists have travelled onto Taipei for the first of three city stops in Pow! Wow! Taiwan and many more have joined them.

Lots more images from Pow! Wow! Japan below.

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

Click here to see our previous post of Dror’s work. More images from “15/20” below.

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
