A week from now I’ll be headed to out to Oahu for Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2014 and doing my best to cover all that goes on out there. Feb 8th-15th artists from all over the world will be painting murals in the Kaka’ako district of Honolulu. There will also be music workshops for youth and lectures by artists (I’ll be giving one too).
Some of my closest friendships have come out of this event, and I’m looking forward meeting to all the new artists that will be there this year. Below is a list of confirmed artists.
Confirmed International Artists:
Aaron De La Cruz
Spencer Keeton Cunningham
Matt and Roxy Ortiz are a husband and wife artist duo, based in Honolulu, making work under the name Vers Hawaii. The couple are becoming known for their paintings of fantastical tree top villages that feature half-pipes and bowls.
I’m sure their work will remind most people of the Lost Boys hideout in Peter Pan but it actually reminds me of something a lot more obscure. Has anyone read Babar Visits Another Planet? I’m probably alone on this one but the floating houses on different levels, and the slides, totally make me think of it.
Take a look at more of their work below!
I made this mix for Pow Wow. It’s dedicated to all of you – all my friends in Hawaii, and all of you around the world. If you’re gonna be on Oahu I’ll see you soon! Otherwise open a window, turn this up, close your eyes, and imagine you’re coming too. Oh, and you better download it before it reaches the limit! Enjoy.

I posted the full track list on Soundcloud, bonus points if you know where the two audio clips are from! If you like it, pass it along!
In a couple weeks I’ll be back on Oahu for Pow Wow Hawaii (aka the best event ever). This year’s event is gonna be different in a lot of ways, and by different I mean HUGE. For starters, the artist roster has tripled in size! Most of last year’s crew is returning and new faces include Kid Zoom, Mr Jago, Flying Fortress, Rone, Slick, Peap Tarr, Poesia, Angry Woebots, I think you get the idea. It’s gonna be nuts!
I’m headed to Hawaii for a little POW WOW (and by little I mean HUGE).
I’ll be living in a house with a bunch of artists in Hale’iwa, in the gorgeous North Shore. Essentially, I may not ever come back (I will be back in a week). I’ll be updating Booooooom with the usual stuff and posting updates from POW WOW. Last time I was there I jumped off this rock, but I promised my mom I wouldn’t do it this time. However, I did get travel insurance. (just joking mom) (but I do have the insurance)
