It feels like only yesterday when we finished up the phenomenal gathering of street artists known as POW WOW. Expanding both the presence inside and out, this year’s event took a giant leap to expand upon its premiere last year in Hawaii. Check out a slick look put together by Banzai Media at the outdoor works by a slew of international artists as they visually transformed the industrial neighborhood of Kaka’ako to psych you up for 2013!
Last month, we reported on a sweet new mural (jellyfish!) from David Choe’s (featured) from the islands of Hawaii (which subsequently got buffed). It looks like while there, the Facebook gangster also painted some faces and brought it along with him to various locales. Take a look at some of the photos he posted of them to his blog as well as some of his adventures there. Discuss David Choe here.
Last weekend, the our friend Kamea Hadar opened a new solo show at the Loft In Space gallery in Hawaii. Kamea is one of the people who has been instrumental in planning the annual POW WOW art festival (covered) in Oahu and is an artist himself. For this new body of work entitled White Dreams, he put together a series of paintings that deal with his personal experiences with his Jewish and island upbringing. As such, his new paintings reflect influences from both background and include a wall to ceiling installation.
After news broke earlier this year that David Choe’s (featured) Facebook stock had made him a very rich man, he was last seen getting interviewed by Howard Stern and Barbara Walters. Looks like he’s finally surfaced on the Big Island of Hawaii where he picked up some paint again to work on a wall featuring classic Choe imagery with imaginative and random creatures. It appears we have a octopus headdress wearing mermaid (attached to a fish) being ridden by a bird dress girl, ninja turtle, and the […]

Tomorrow night (April 19th) in Oahu, Loft in Space welcomes back Ryuichi Ogino (OGI) for an exhibition entitled Kigen. AM first met up with OGI back in February for the annual art retreat known as POW WOW, and now the Tokyo-based artist is back for his first solo in Hawaii. You can expect works from him that continue his exploration of anime-inspired characters in whimsical settings while combining elements of modernist illustration, text, sculpture, and installation. A glimpse of one of the pieces in the […]
The ocean and the gnarly waves are some of the elements that are synonymous with the Hawaii islands and this year’s POW WOW made sure to make their mark on some water front property. The 123Klan, Slick, Flying Fortress and Aaron De La Cruz hit up the old derelict Fisherman’s Wharf with some marine-themed urban action to greet passerby’s. More photos after the jump…
