#POWWOWHawaii has been going down this week in Kakaʻako.
“POW! WOW! HAWAIʻI IS A GATHERING OF CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS THAT ENGAGES WITH THE BROADER COMMUNITY IN THE PROCESS AND CREATION OF ART.”
This year’s biggest name is probably Shepard Fairey @ObeyGiant. (Last year it was Simone Legno @tokidoki.) I get to drive past this mural every morning to work.
This cool one by @negiyakisoba + @squid.licker is on the corner of Cooke & Auahi. (Bummed that someone would park here during “opening weekend.”)
This popular artist is Kevin Lyons @klyonsnatborn. Climbed over the fence at Mother Waldron Park to get this shot.
This surf themed mural is across the street from the basketball courts.
This one across from Honolulu Beerworks is by locally-based artist, Kris Goto.
And this corner mural is just a few steps away. Love Marvel stuff…
Had an amazing time checking out the murals and meeting a few of the artists. Highly recommend that you rent a Biki and cruise around. Be sure to visit POW! WOW! headquarters at Lana Lane Studios. You can pick up the passport and merch there. Relax at one of the many cafés in SALT @ Our Kakaʻako. Definitely one of my fave events of the year…
