After bringing you extensive coverage of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii, it’s time to recap the rest of murals that we didn’t have time to focus on. Along with local artists, the muralists travelled from all over the world (like Defer & Norm whose calligraphy made a perfect background to Kamea Hadar’s overlaid face) to beautify the industrial district of Kaka’ako in Honolulu and to share in the aloha spirit. Enjoy the rest of the images below and see you next year! Discuss POW WOW here. Photo credit: […]
Curated by Graffuturism founder and artist Poesia (interviewed), A Major Minority gathers A4 sized works from over 100 artists in 18 countries from what he likes to call “Othercontemporay Urban Art.” He states “because Urban Art has been misunderstood and ignored by institutions and their current version of art history, it was necessary to attempt to initiate and standardize a unique term that would augment and define this outsider art form.” Opening on March 14th at 1:AM Gallery in San Franscico, the show aims to illustrate the large scope of this art […]

Tomorrow night, Anonymous Gallery in New York will present the first solo exhibition of artist Pryce Lee. Entitled Single Shot, this show consists of transformative works that focus on life, death and the human experience. The 15 “single shots” on display will provide the opportunity for attendees to be both viewer and viewed simultaneously, forcing objectivity and contemplation while becoming a part of the artist’s subject matter. Depicted through specific acts of gun violence, this work further explores how singular moments, for better or worse, alter an […]
