POW! WOW! Hawaii 2017 Recap

Here’s a little (and by little I mean massive) photo recap of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii arts festival. I was fortunate to meet many artists whose work I’d been admiring for years from a computer screen, and I left feeling extremely inspired and excited to work on creative back at home. Have a look at many many photos below (some from me, some from Brandon Shigeta, some from Jasper Wong).

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

See more images below.
