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 our third and final part of POW WOW Hawai’i 2011, we follow Jasper Wong and the roster of artists through a more leisurely stroll involving Hawai’i's beautiful wilderness, including a hike up Koko Head Summit which served as a look-out for kamikaze planes during World War II. Interlaced between the scenes are commentary from participating artists such as Yu Wue, Prime and Ekundayo. The end of POW WOW Hawai’i 2011 included a traditional luau with a performance by rizzling (spinning rolling papers on your finger) grandmaster Larry “Pacquiao” Chen, put onto the “sport” by none other then Suitman.

Director: Mikey Inouye of Banzai Media
