Here’s a little (and by little I mean massive) photo recap of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii arts festival. I was fortunate to meet many artists whose work I’d been admiring for years from a computer screen, and I left feeling extremely inspired and excited to work on creative back at home. Have a look at many many photos below (some from me, some from Brandon Shigeta, some from Jasper Wong).
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.
