POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Andrew Schoultz & Hannah Stouffer

Another collaboration that grabbed our attention during this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii was a long joint mural from Andrew Schoultz and Hannah Stouffer. The waves and kinetic imagery from Schoultz provided a nice contrast to the softer forest renderings and volcanic eruptions of Stouffer, providing an interesting continous landscape for the people who pass by in the industrial district of Kaka’ako. Take a look at some closer shots as well as in-progress pics below… Photos credit: saL. Discuss POW WOW here. Discuss Andrew Schoultz here.

Streets: Hendrik “ECB” Beikirch (India)

Hendrik “ECB” Beikirch recently visited India where he created another portrait style mural that he is known for. In order to commemorate the 66th anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, the German artist created a huge portrait of the civil rights icon with the help of Indian artist Anpu Varkey. The wall is located on one of the busiest streets of New Delhi, and reaches a hight of 160 feet, which makes it reportedly the tallest mural in India. It took four long days of work for […]

Streets: Interesni Kazki (India)

As much as they are known for their colorful, fairy tale like, surrealistic murals, paintings and illustrations, Ukrainian art duo Interesni Kazki (interviewed) are also known for their love for traveling, especially to remote, more spiritual regions of the world. Taking inspiration from local traditions, beliefs and different lifestyles, AEC and Waone recently spent time traveling through India again. During their travels, they stayed in the Kerala aka Keralam region, a state in the south-west region of India on the Malabar coast, where they created a couple […]

POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Tristan Eaton

Tristan Eaton’s Escape The Night mural for POW! WOW! Hawaii was one of the biggest ones at this year’s edition of the festival. Getting a flat, clear, three story high and wide wall was perfect for the Los Angeles-based artist to show his skills and signature style. Creating another collage like mural, completely executed with spray paint, didn’t only show Eaton’s talent for visual art, but also his incredible skills and control of spray paint as medium. The entire image was made up of various images that included clean, corporate […]

POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Reka

One of the pieces we enjoyed for this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii festival by many participants and visitors, was the one created by Reka. The Melbourne-born and Berlin-based artist tackled the architectural challenges with great ease and speed, proving his long experience and enviable skills working with the spray paint medium, and was among the first ones to finish his work. Using more tropical colors in order to match the surrounding, and island friendly imagery such as flowers, tree roots, tribal faces, with lots of signature clean […]

Streets: Os Gemeos (San Francisco)

Thanks to The Lugagge Store Gallery in San Francisco, the other day we finally got a chance to check out up close and snap some exclusive shots of the Os Gemeos mural painted on top of their building at 1007 Market Street back in Sept 2013. This magnificent piece was commissioned by gallery and funded by the Graue Family Fund for Public Art, and was painted over a previous mural the Sao Paulo-based artists painted on the same spot back in 2003 – celebrating 10 years since […]

POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Vhils

Alexandre Farto aka Vhils was one of the most anticipated names for this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii festival. Both visitors and participating artists were looking forward to seeing the Portuguese artist in action, which kept being postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Eventually, the machines started roaring and tearing down chunks of the the wall. The scene was looking and sounding very different than at any other mural, as it all looked more like a chaotic construction site than where an art piece is getting created. Using his […]

POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Cyrcle

Dynamic art duo Cyrcle. (featured) was one of the last ones to finish their mural for POW! WOW! Hawaii festival due to their busy schedule. They had just barely enough time to pull this massive masterpiece off, but with their well-coordinated team work, they made it happen over two nights & days of painting. In their signature style, they created a hand painted image that looks like it’s an oversized vectored image. Painstakingly spraying every single dot, they created an impressive mural in front of Fresh Cafe in the Kaka’ako area […]

POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Dave Kinsey

Dave Kinsey (featured) was one of the names we were looking forward to seeing in this year’s edition of the massive POW! WOW! Hawaii festival. Even though he arrived a few days later than planned and the tropical weather wasn’t on his side, he managed to finish this huge mural after two long days of painting. Being especially intrigued by the shrine like shape of the wall, his piece is inspired by the constant battle between civilization and nature of Hawaii. The majestic tree in the middle of […]

POW! WOW! ’14 / Streets: Inti

After long days of working under hot Hawaiian sun, another participating artist the of POW! WOW! Hawaii festival, Inti, recently finished his mural. Known for his focus on the rich South American history, tradition, and symbols in his public art, the artist decided to use this “smaller wall” (by his standards), for something a bit different. Instead of painting only his characters that he is most known for, the Chilean-born and Paris-based artist created a still life image using a lot of different elements. Along with […]
