One of the most popular pieces painted for this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii (more coverage here) came from Maya Hayuk, who recently completed her mural in the Kaka’ako district. Working with her assistant for four solid days, the New York-based artist applied layers upon layers of thick colorful paint, creating another signature piece that quickly became one of the favorites among visitors.
Due to her incredible energy and positive attitude, her wall was one of the more interesting ones to visit during its making. With tunes pumping from morning till late night while Hayuk and her assistant having great fun working, the scene would often turn a little block party by the end of the night. This energy was definitely transferred onto the wall through layers of drippy bright paint that woven together resulted in a psychedelic pattern that was just as photogenic as the artist.
