Hawai’i Walls 2023 Recap

Had a blast at this year’s Hawai’i Walls art festival. The highlight for me was definitely the chance to interview acclaimed filmmakers The Daniels and Kirsten Lepore on an outdoor stage, on the lawn of the Bishop Museum in Honolulu (watch the entire interview here). We also helped run a super fun film workshop with Daniel and Daniel and Kirsten at Kalihi Kai Elementary School and the kids were all so cool. Was also very stoked to finally met some artists in person, like the duo Giorgiko, who I’d been admiring via my phone screen. Have a look at just a few of the gazillion murals from this year’s festival. All photos shot by Brandon Shigeta.
