POW! WOW! 2014 Recap
Growing year by year, POW WOW has outgrown its roots as a one-day contemporary art festival to become a creative community of international artists and contributors. This year was no different, with alumni and groundbreaking talents from the realms of music and art coming together for a week-long gathering in Honolulu, Hawaii. Highlights included the opening exhibition curated by Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace, the screening of The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan by Roger Gasteman, and the pop-up shows from 1XRun and Pangea Seed and RVCA x The Seventh Letter, while workshops and lectures offered insight to the art at hand, and a closing Block Party celebrated the striking new murals of Kaka’ako. Here, we get a closer look at pieces from the likes of Madsteez, Trav MSK, Apex, Tristan Eaton, Auustine Kofie, Nychos, Andrew Schoultz, Hannah Stouffer, Norm, Vhils, Push, Dabs Myla, CYRCLE., 123 Klan and James Jean. Tackling the architectures with their signature styles, the artists added to the high spirits of the newly-transformed art district with their own unique pieces. Enjoy the recap images above and stay tuned for more in-depth features with this year’s participants.
