POW! WOW! x Tristan Eaton x Versace

To celebrate the opening of their new flagship in Hawaii, Versace worked with POW! WOW! to provide a large scale mural on one of the key arteries in Honolulu. Located on the intersection of Ala Moana Boulevard and Keawe Street, curator Jasper Wong brought in world-renowned street artist Tristan Eaton to create his own interpretation of the iconic Medusa. Painted over a period of five days, Tristan Eaton employed his unique aesthetics to create a masterpiece that encompasses elements of classic Versace patterns and a variety of textures and styles.

POW! WOW! Taiwan

Vince Ricafort put together this little teaser to get you moist for POW! WOW! Taiwan. In his own words he recounts his experience of the festival:

“I’m psyched to have been a part of POW! WOW! Hawaii for the last 4 years in Hawaii. We created this video with no budget, a lot of love, and a paycheck of unforgettable experiences. It’s been wild to see it grow and humbling to have so many talents gather in one place, even if it’s just for a moment. But there’s a lot that can happen in a week, and art has the power to move entire cities! Pow! Wow! has begun to travel, its next incarnation touching down in the city of Taipei on May 25, 2014.”

GET READY, TAIWAN!
