Pow Wow Hawai’i 2013: Celebrating Art, Music, Culture & Graffiti

This article was posted by ColaP 1 year, 7 months, 1 week, 1 day, 18 hours, 17 minutes ago.

Pow Wow Hawai’i, an annual event celebrating art, music and culture, is “a project to bring people together. It’s a gathering of artists, of people,” asserts its creator Jasper Wong. It is “about beautifying a neighborhood, about changing a neighborhood through art,” he claims.

About to enter its fourth year of existence (third year in Hawai’i), Pow Wow has big plans for 2013. The creators are in the process of confirming a slew of talented and internationally renowned illustrators, muralists and graff writers for the upcoming event. On hand at this year’s event will be Faith47, Jeff Soto, Mare139, Madsteez and many others. In addition to a week’s worth of painting in the streets, Pow Wow will play host to a “group exhibition, pop-up shops, lectures at the University of Hawaii, youth art and music workshops” as well as a block party to commemorate all of the goings on.

Take a look at the video above, which recaps last year’s event. To view parts 2 and 3, click here. Be on the lookout for coverage of Pow Wow 2013 and check out the event in person should you find yourself in Honolulu February 9th-16th.
