Pow! Wow! Long Beach 2015



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.

Maya Hayuk, Fafi, Olek, Natalia Rak, Tati, Lauren YS, and Hueman are among the artists featured in the video below.

Mural Recap: Pow! Wow! Hawaii

james-jeanMural by James Jean

There were so many incredible murals painted at this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii event. It’s impossible to the fully appreciate these works without seeing them in person so maybe you’ll have to fly out to Honolulu and find them.

All the images in this post were painstakingly shot by Brandon Shigeta, who had to wake up extremely early (and also wait around for hours) to catch some of these without cars blocking them. He’s one of the hardest working people at this event every year.

I hope people in Honolulu realise how special this is; Vancouver is dying for something like this. Keep in mind, this post doesn’t even include all the work that was produced this year!

Artist Profile: Olek


There were two artists that worked exclusively with yarn at this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii festival: Hot Tea (Minnesota), and Olek (New York). The video below captures Olek as she crochets a beautiful canoe using materials generously provided by Anthropologie. I like the part where she says “my work is never completed, the reaction completes my work”.

Watch the video below.
