We’re out at Pow! Wow! Long Beach art festival this week. You can follow along on Instagram @booooooom, @powwowlongbeach, @powwowhawaii.

The first image above is Hot Tea’s piece (shot from below) in Thinkspace’s “Vitality and Verve” show opening at the Long Beach Museum of Art on Friday. The second image is a portion of Brendan Monroe’s mind-melter that flows out onto three different walls. I had a peek at most of the show yesterday and it’s INSANE. Everyone is painting huge pieces right on the walls of the gallery. Can’t wait to show you the work.
