Another mural created for POW WOW Hawaii by Kamea Hadar and Rone (see his first mural here) was finished up after the week ended. Combining the local talents of Hadar and Rone’s skills from down under, the mural featured a closeup portrait of a Hawaiian girl beautifying the Kaka’ako area for years to come. Check out more detailed pics below… Discuss POW WOW here. Discuss Rone here.
Joining his wife and partner in art Faith47 in Hawaii for this year’s POW WOW was the South Africa-based DALeast. Only a few hundred feet away from where Faith painted her piece, DAL got up on the side of a building with this bird with an impressive wingspan, painted in his signature kinetic style. Check out more photos below and look for more from the duo as they head home. Discuss POW WOW here. Discuss DAL here.
After collaborating on an epic wall with Jeff Soto (covered) and painting a piece at the Lana Lane Studios headquarters for POW WOW Hawaii, Nychos took time to work on a mural of a more personal nature. The wall was painted by the Austrian street muralist in memory of his late grandfather show recently passed. As you can see, this piece is adjacent to the Rone x Wanderlust piece seen partially to the side in some photos… Discuss POW WOW here. Discuss Nychos here.
Another mural we watched go up during POW WOW Hawaii was a joint effort from Yoskay Yamamoto, Jeff Hamada, Wu Yue, and Andrea Wan. Situated next to a small park in the Kaka’ako district, the piece meshed the talents of all four artists who hail from different parts of the world – Los Angeles, Vancouver, Paris, and Berlin. Take a look at some more detailed pics below… Discuss POW WOW here.
South African power couple Faith47 and DAL were one of the many duos that were in town for POW WOW this last week. We’ll start with the delicate work of Faith first with photos of her mural The Silence Before across from the Fresh Cafe on Queen Street in Oahu. The minimal palette that she uses blended in nicely with the neighboring structures and will be admired by art lovers in that part of town for years to come. Discuss POW WOW here.

Another wall that was shared during POW WOW this year was the side of Fresh Cafe & Loft In Space, center of much of the activity surrounding the event. Getting up at this location were the LA-based artists Shark Toof and Angry Woebots with their signature characters (sharks and pandas) looking fierce. Take a more detailed look in the photos below and keep it locked here on AM as we have more completed murals to share with you soon. Discuss POW WOW here.
After a relaxing week in Hawaii filled with art, great food, and friends we haven’t seen in awhile, it’s time to share with you photos of some more of the murals that went up for POW WOW 2013. One of the collaborative pieces that seemed to work well for this year’s event was from Nychos and Jeff Soto (interviewed). With both artists who have some of the more painterly techniques there, the combination of their imagery meshed quite nicely on this large wall. Discuss POW WOW here. [...]
On Saturday night, POW WOW 2013 officially closed with a finale block party at their headquarters deep in the Kaka’ako district – Lana Lane Studios. As evidenced by the massive turnout and support, the event has experience tremendous growth in the past year so we can only hope for even bigger and better things for 2014. Check out some more photos below of the festivities as well as some of the participants and people involved in this year’s event including Nychos (seen above) who painted mural [...]
While AM and local art-lovers are enjoying the public murals (like the one seen above in-progress from DAL) that come along with the annual POW WOW event, others from around the world can only experience it through the photos and videos posted online. They now are hoping to supplement this with the production of an official book and film. “The book will contain high resolution photos of all the completed murals, covering all major POW WOW 2013 satellite events, with sketches and interviews by artists and Pow [...]
