Barcelona-based Reskate Arts & Crafts use luminescent paint to create murals that not only light up when the sun goes down, they display a completely different (though often complementary) image. Their piece for Action Against Hunger, for example, is a loaf of bread that transforms into a bread knife. Check out more of Reskate’s ingenious double murals below!
Mural by Audrey Kawasaki
All the images in this post were shot by the hardest working guy I know, Brandon Shigeta. From what I understand this image above was Audrey Kawasaki’s first mural ever!* So many amazing walls at this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii art festival. Have a look at more below.
*EDIT – it is not her first mural, but it’s her first large-scale outdoor mural.
I spent the last couple weeks of October out in Tokyo to be a part of the first-ever Pow! Wow! Japan event. Met so many amazing people, some whose work I’d followed for years (like Dave Kinsey), and all the art produced was incredible. This event continues to prove to me that the truly talented people in this world are all the friendliest too.
This enormous 12-storey mural above was painted by Case (who you might remember from our film, Heavy Dreamers) and it was kind of insane because he was only allowed to use the lift until about 3pm everyday because a bus had to park below. Not sure how he finished it in time but I believe he spent 47 hours on it total. He gets the award for largest mural in the history of the Pow! Wow! event.
Case and several other artists have travelled onto Taipei for the first of three city stops in Pow! Wow! Taiwan and many more have joined them.
Lots more images from Pow! Wow! Japan below.
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.
