In an idea that came to fruition in the beginning of 2010 in Hong Kong, POW WOW was created as an exhibition of creative talents which stressed more so the background and development of art. As opposed to the often seen focus on the finished product, POW WOW set forth in giving the public access to artists in their element as they went to work on their respective pieces. In this series, we take a look at POW WOW 2011 which took place in founder Jasper Wong’s native Hawai’i and the comprehensive process that surrounded the event. While Hawai’i has had its fair share of creative output, POW WOW has represented the island’s most concentrated effort to help push and build the local artistic community. A Kickstarter page has recently been started in anticipation of next year’s 2012 event, and donations can be made here.

In part 2 of our series on POW WOW Hawai’i and its 2011 exhibition recap, we showcase the final climax of the event which took place on February 19 at Fresh Cafe and Loft In Space. Along the way, we also gain an introspective look into the work of some of the artists involved including Will Barras, Yue Wu and Suitman.

Director: Mikey Inouye of Banzai Media
