My good friend Jasper Wong (host of our Small Victories show in Hong Kong) is at it again! He has organized a wonderful event called Pow Wow in Oahu, Hawaii and I get to fly out there and be a part of it!
Jasper and I will be joining international artists Will Barras (London), Meggs (Melbourne), Wu Yue (Paris), and 123Klan (Montreal), as well as local artists Prime, Ekundayo, and Kamea Hadar.
The artists will be painting a venue called Loft in Space from February 16 to 19 and during this time the public is encouraged to come and interact with the artists while they work! The show will open the evening of February 19 with a huge celebration.
Following the event, a selection of the artists will develop graphics based on their experiences in Hawaii and a limited-edition capsule collection will be released in collaboration with Incase and In4mation.
Essentially it’s going to be the best vacation disguised as work EVER! I’ll be posting more about this as we get closer to the event but keep your eye on the POW WOW BLOG.
Below are a few of the hooligans involved!
The first-ever Booooooom film screening was a huge success! Thank you all for showing up and packing it out! Huge thanks to the gang at W2 for hosting the event for FREE! If you came out and enjoyed the film, please note that “An Island” runs on donations so if you feel inclined you can jump over here and support the project! Cheers!
The artist responsible for the amazing french fry sculpture is Christopher Chiappa! Huge thanks to Melissa for commenting on the original post and pointing me to the Kate Werble Gallery! The community here is such an amazing resource! Kate just sent over a couple images and it turns out the work is part of a diptych called “McMiracles”.
