This week (June 22nd-27th) the arts festival known as Pow! Wow! invades Long Beach, California, and is well on its way to becoming the largest mural arts festival in the world. In the last year the festival traveled to Taipei, Taiwan, hosted their largest event yet in Honolulu, Hawaii, and expanded to Austin, Texas (in partnership with SXSW).

Pow! Wow! Long Beach 2015 roster: Aaron De La, Benjie Escobar, Bumblebee, Cruz, Cryptik, Fafi, Hueman, James Jean, Jeff McMillan, Jeff Soto, Low Bros, Madsteez, Nychos, Push, and Tristan Eaton.

On June 26th Long Beach Museum of Art and Thinkspace Gallery are also hosting “Vitality and Verve” and have invited 20 international artists including Aaron Horkey, Andrew Schoultz, Audrey Kawasaki, Brendan Monroe, Esao Andrews, Greg Simkins, Hot Tea, Meggs, Nosego and many others to transform both floors of their building with murals and installations.

I’ll be out there for the week so if you live in the area please come and say hello! I’d love to meet you! Follow along here @booooooom or @powwowlongbeach.

You can watch the video from Pow! Wow! SXSW below.

Artists Brendan Monroe and Souther Salazar have teamed up on a mural in Portland, as part of Forest For The Trees. This is a dream team as far as I’m concerned; two of my favourites. A couple more flicks below!

POW! WOW! TAIWAN / PART I

POWWOW-TAIWAN-01

Pow! Wow! Taiwan has officially begun! I’ve been out in Taipei for a week now, and it has quickly become one of my favourite cities (the food miiight have something to do with it). Here’s a quick re-cap of the first couple days. If you want to follow along on Instagram I’m posting to @Booooooom and you can follow @PowWowTaiwan as well.

We started with a tour of all the potential walls in the city (photo above: Madsteez and Brendan Monroe), which was followed by the official opening of the event. Yesterday we had a little rain delay, so most of the artists are getting started today. James Jean, Kristen Farr, and Mr.Ogay were among the artists able to put some work in, and you can see images of their progress at the bottom of this post.

Lots of images below, have a look!
