A couple months ago, the 2018 edition of the POW! WOW! Hawaii was held on the island of Oahu, a week long annual event that celebrates culture, music and art. As always, the focus for us is the action that happens on the streets of Kaka’ako as local and international artists gather to paint live murals.
