Public Art Project "Forest for the Trees" Launches in Portland, Oregon

From the socially conscious minds of the Pacific Northwest – with support from Hawaiian art

From the socially conscious minds of the Pacific Northwest – with support from Hawaiian art consortium POW! WOW! and Portland’s Hellion Gallery – comes the launch of Forest For The Trees, a public mural project with the goal of engaging the surrounding Oregonian community in the process of beautifying their local neighborhoods. Starting on August 18, a group of 16 renowned artist – including Blaine Fontana, Erik Otto, Gage Hamilton, J.Shea, Jun Inoue, Kamea Hadar, Madsteez, Marcelo Macedo, MEGGS, Mhak, Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter, Rone, Taka Sudo, Yoskay Yamamoto and Zach Yarrington – gathered in the American Northwest city for a week-long event to bring their own personal style to the city’s walls, inviting its inhabitants to join in on the fun.
