Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2016 Mural Recap


Mural by Audrey Kawasaki

All the images in this post were shot by the hardest working guy I know, Brandon Shigeta. From what I understand this image above was Audrey Kawasaki’s first mural ever!* So many amazing walls at this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii art festival. Have a look at more below.

*EDIT – it is not her first mural, but it’s her first large-scale outdoor mural.

  • Audrey kawasaki

    Thankyou for sharing! I actually did 3 murals last year, at Worcester Art Museum, Long Beach Museum of Art, and the Static Medium studio. They were fairly small and indoors, so this was my first large scale outdoor wall. It was a challenge, to say the least, but was extraordinarily fulfilling! :)

    • wish I’d been out there, first one I missed! (i was basing this off of Kevin’s comment on Instagram). will be out there in June so I’m excited to see it in person!
