Pow Wow Hawaii’s Art Community on the Rise

Maybe it’s the fresh air. Maybe it’s the friendly, beautiful people. Maybe it’s a combination of both but whatever it is Hawaii isn’t just the perfect place to vacation it’s a great place for art and the annual Pow Wow festival.

We traveled to the other side of the map to attend the five-day event showcasing Hawaii’s art. Local and international artists were invited to paint the streets of Kaka’ako, adding another layer of beauty to Honolulu’s city already rich with creative professionals from Hawaii’s art community.

At the helm of the event in its second year is Jasper Wong, an artist and founder of Pow Wow Hawaii who commissioned the work of native Hawaiian talent like PRIME and ESTRIA, but also had them in the company of guests 123 Klan, Flying Fortress, and Aaron De La Cruz. Kamea Hadar, director of operations for Pow Wow says in one of the video recaps, “The local artists are extremely vital to Pow Wow. We want to build a community in Hawaii that’s not just from passing travelers but also from people who live here.” Learn more about the diversity of the artists represented at Pow Wow in their three part recap. Catch up, because the confirmed artists for 2013’s Pow Wow are being confirmed on the Pow Wow Tumblr.
