I spent my last year in college saving all my tip money and putting money aside every paycheck for Pow! Wow! Hawaii! 2014, an annual gathering of artists from around the world to bring color to Honolulu’s Kaka’ako district. However, a family emergency occurred so our road to Pow! Wow! had to be set aside.
A year later, here we are as Pow! Wow! and Hawaii itself exceed my already high I-daydreamed-about-this-everyday expectations.
These are the murals that we had the opportunity to witness come to life yesterday

A 1xRun exhibition is also found at the Fresh Cafe in their gallery Loft in Space. Looking at these art prints from artists like Sainer and Naturel made me wish I had a few hundreds to spare.
