Next week I’m flying out to Honolulu for the giant arts festival known as Pow! Wow! Hawaii. Booooooom is gonna be a media sponsor again, and actually we’re teaming up with WeTransfer to produce an official video for this year’s festival! So keep your eyes peeled for that.

In the lead up to the event the team has just released a video re-cap of Pow! Wow! Taiwan, the most recent festival, which took place in Taipei.

Vincent Ricafort did a great job capturing the fun vibe of the event. You may recognize a lot of artists I’ve featured on Booooooom (I’m in there a bit too), and if you’re wondering who the dancing people are they’re the organizers and volunteers who worked tirelessly to put on an amazing event. Thank you to everyone involved, I had the best time!

The annual arts festival known as Pow! Wow! Hawaii is coming up next month and in the lead up to the event, they’ve released this great video from last year. After finishing up his own mural, artist Ron English walked around and interviewed several others artists while they worked. You can follow the @PowWowHawaii Instagram for updates – congrats to Jasper who managed to get that account over 100k followers without ever being featured by Instagram (teach me your secrets).

Watch the video below to see the event through the eyes of Ron English!

Hiro Murai does not sleep! It’s barely been two weeks since that gorgeous FlyLo video he directed hit the net, and he’s already followed it up with an unpredictable video for Childish Gambino’s Telegraph Ave. When this video starts you’ll think you know what you’re in for, but watch till the end (trust me).

POW! WOW! Paints Hawaiian Airlines

hawaiianairlines21

Hawaiian Airlines is a big reason why my friends out in Hawaii are able to make the massive Pow! Wow! mural festival happen each year. Each year the airline covers the flights of many of the world’s best artists for the event, and recently they invited artists to put their work all over the runway. This really illustrates to me the way the Pow! Wow! organizers have grown their event in a few short years; it’s the product of building lasting relationships with people and companies, making sure everyone benefits. If you’re organizing an annual event you could learn a lot from the way they’re going about things.

Watch the video below of the Hawaiian Airlines ground service vehicles getting the Pow! Wow! treatment. I’m already looking forward to February!

“The Talk of the Sea”

thetalkofthesea-07

In a couple days (this Friday) two canoes will embark from Hawaii on a historic three year journey around the world, using only the sun, wind, waves, and stars to guide them. Polynesian Navigators will attempt to circumnavigate the world in a sacred canoe, Hokule’a (the canoe that legendary surfer Eddie Aikau lost his life trying to save), and its sister canoe Hikianalia.

Artist Kamea Hadar and young artists from the POW! WOW! School of Art and 808 Urban painted a beautiful mural to commemorate this event. The painting depicts Papa Mau Piailug, a master navigator from the island of Satawal, Micronesia.

All the murals of Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2014 (Well, almost all of them)

Here is a look at almost all of the walls from the Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2014 event, courtesy of photographer Brandon Shigeta. This was by far the biggest year yet which made it nearly impossible to see every wall that was painted. Some of the images here are of walls in progress, and there are more than a few murals missing.

Have a look at most of them below! Oh, and ya gotta see Roids and Insa’s animated wall (they painted one frame a day) here.
