I've been meaning to share my experience at Pow Wow .In February, I had the chance to head out to Oahu for a week for a little vacay, and to explore the art scene. Pow Wow is a really amazing event that is held once a year in the Kaka'ako district of Honolulu. Artists from Hawaii and around the world come together to create wall murals and art. It's a very organic and authentic event and about true artists creating, just for the sake for their passion. I love that it's really non-commercialized.
Kamea Hadar, an artist and one of the co-founders, has a family property where most of the artists are housed. His entire place was opened up to them, along with a few random houseboats that are scattered around the huge property in North Shore.
Anyway, at the end of the week, a big celebration party was held at this house. It was really great to meet a bunch of passionate and creative people and witness something so real. I really hope to make it out there year after year and watch Pow Wow Hawaii's growth.
Soon, I'll definitely post some photos from the actual wall murals. Here's a link to a video of Kamea if you're curious before then. - POW! WOW! HAWAII
If you're an art lover like me then I think you'll really appreciate the movement.
