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.

POW! WOW! SXSW

This past year the mural arts festival known as Pow! Wow! grew leaps and bounds, hosting their largest event yet, in Honolulu, Hawaii, and launching a satellite event in Taipei, Taiwan.

This month they continued their rapid expansion by partnering with SXSW and SprATX to bring some mural artists to the city of Austin, Texas. Rone (seen above), Tatiana Suarez, Kamea Hadar, Yoskay Yamamoto, Jeff Gress, Ana Maria, and Meggs were among the attending artists.

Forest For The Trees

Last month marked the debut of Forest For The Trees, a mural project in Portland, Oregon. The event was sort of a sister event to Pow! Wow!, and featured a whole lotta my friends: Erik Otto, Meggs, Rone, Madsteez, Sam Rodriguez, Kamea Hadar, and Yoskay Yamamoto among others.

You can watch a video re-cap of the event below, as well as a time-lapse of Rone painting the wall you see here.
