Pow Wow Murals #1
I wanted to post photos of my favourite walls from POW WOW. This first one is by RONE, and it had to be the largest painting by one artist, in the entire show.

Fresh Letter Project

Fresh Letter Project
The new Booooooom project is here!

I wanted to launch a fun project before I left Hawaii so I spent the last couple days building a giant cork board at Fresh Café (located in the front of Loft In Space, which hosts Pow Wow).

The idea is to have people from all over the world create letters, photograph them, and physically mail the photos to the café! I shot a few sets of letters on the beach with some friends to kick it off.

Hopefully over time there will be a giant collection of these letters that people at Fresh Café can use to spell fun messages!

Mahalo Gozaimasu

Mahalo Gozaimasu Hawaii
I wanted to leave Hawaii on a high note so I jumped a 60 ft cliff. Sorry Mom, it looks slightly more dangerous than it was.

It’s gonna be hard to leave this place but I’ve been here for nearly a month so I can’t really complain. I’ll be home this week and the site will go back to normal! More photos from the last few days below!

Art After Dark

Art After Dark / Honolulu Academy of Art
The other night a few of us painted at an event called “Art After Dark” at the Honolulu Museum of Art. The best part was when this little girl fearlessly walked up on the stage and joined in on the action.

Photo by Lucky, he painted the skull.

More photos below (in reverse order).
