Usugrow painting in Shibuya as part of Pow! Wow! Japan
The international arts festival, Pow! Wow!, has just announced their next two events will be back to back weeklong exhibitions in Japan and Taiwan, starting October 17th. The Asia Tour roster includes renowned artists Faith47, Kinsey, Fafi, Jeff Soto, Case, Kevin Ancell, Ben Horton, Naturel, and many others. Local artists, including one of my personal favourites, Usugrow (seen above), have already started on a giant mural in Shibuya in the lead up to the event.
Renowned Japanese artist Usugrow is releasing a book with Upper Playground, and will be signing copies at their San Francisco location this Sunday. The artist is also busy finishing work for his solo show “Inkflow” opening at Fifty24SF Gallery on October 4th. He might be my favourite letterer of all time. Have a look at some more process images below.
