POW! WOW! Mural in Tokyo Welcomes the Festival's Japan Debut

A Shibuya building becomes a canvas for the arts festival’s premiere in Japan.

As a prelude to the imminent POW! WOW! festival in Japan, artists Mon, Bakibaki, Cook One, Usugrow, Dragon76, Luise One, Jay Shogo and Frankie Cihi gathered to dress the entire face of a multi-floor building in the bustling ward of Shibuya. In partnership with Microsoft, the artists are seen balancing along scaffolding and arming themselves with buckets of paint, stencils, and more, to create the extensive mural. The multi-day affair, which started in Hawaii in 2010, has been lauded for bringing creatives together from all over the world. POW! WOW! Japan will take place in Tokyo October 17-24.
