POW WOW Hawai'i 2012

Following up on an extremely successful showing in 2011, the multi-day POW WOW Hawai’i art event

Following up on an extremely successful showing in 2011, the multi-day POW WOW Hawai’i art event prepares for its third annual showing. Originally conceived in Hong Kong, the event moved to founder Jasper Wong’s native Hawaii to help enrich the local creative scene. The event encompasses a global roster of over 30 artists who will each create art at Loft in Space and over the streets of Kaka’ako over a six-day period between February 13 to 18. The artists include 123KLAN, Angry Woebots, Aaron De La Cruz, Flying Fortress, Mr. Jago, Jeff Hamada, Nicole Naone, Samuel Rodriguez, Suitman, Prime and many more. Aside from the main event of artists hard at work, two secondary elements include an Arkitip Pop-Up Store and the Day Job? curated by HYPEBEAST’s own Eugene Kan. The nearly week-long event culminates with a huge party on Saturday, February 18 as well as a “black out” session in which many of the pieces created for the event will be painted over to reinforce the importance of process in art.

The beauty of art is most commonly enjoyed during its final stage. All the blood, sweat and tears happen behind closed doors. However, that is where the real grandeur lies. The process. Imagine for a moment a gathering of internationally renowned artists in one place. A place that will allow them to do what they do best: be creative. We give them the tools, the space and the freedom to paint for one week. We make that process open to the public, allowing them full engagement and interaction between the artists and their audience. They witness the creativity in its entirety and become an essential part of the artists’ process. It’s about the breaking down of those closed doors and making art accessible. Now take a step further and imagine transforming a whole neighborhood with art within a week. Seeing creativity happen all around you from beginning to end and bringing people together through art. A POW WOW.
