HAWAII – Pow Wow 2012

Nachdem wir es letztes Jahr leider verpasst haben über das Debüt des Festivals in Hongkong zu berichten haben wir dieses Jahr mal näher reingeschaut in Jasper Wong´s POW WOW! Das Event hat er im Februar nach Hawaii geholt um der lokalen Graffiti- und Street Art Szene einen Schub zu geben und das lokale Netzwerk der Szene auf der US-amerikanischen Insel etwas zu verbessern. Der 123KLAN, Angry Woebots, Aaron De La Cruz, Flying Fortress, Mr. Jago, Jeff Hamada, Samuel Rodriguez, Meggs, Rone, Slick, Suitman, Prime und viele mehr wurden für 6 Tage eingeladen um auf verschiedene Flächen auf der Insel zusammenzuarbeiten. Das Ganze wurde in 3 Filmen von Michael Inouye dokumentiert, die und eine Auswahl der Murals gibt´s nach dem Jump!

Following up on an extremely successful showing in 2011, the multi-day POW WOW Hawai’i art event had its third annual showing in 2012. 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, 2012. The artists include 123KLAN, Angry Woebots, Aaron De La Cruz, Flying Fortress, Mr. Jago, Jeff Hamada, Samuel Rodriguez, Meggs, Rone, Slick, Suitman, Prime and many more. Aside from the main event of artists hard at work, two secondary elements included an Arkitip Pop-Up Store and the “Day Job?” curated by Hypebeast’s Eugene Kan. The nearly week-long event culminated with a huge party on Saturday, February 18, 2012 as well as a “black out” session in which many of the pieces created for the event was painted over to reinforce the importance of process in art./ POWWOW
