POW! WOW! x RVCA – RVCAloha

Every winter the advocates and artists of RVCA gather on the shores of Oahu to skate, surf and paint. Dubbed RVCAloha, the 2014 edition had RVCA and POW! WOW! painting a new mural at the Keolu Skatepark in Kailua, Hawaii. Battling intermittent showers and the harsh Hawaiian sun, Dmote and Soul completed a stunning piece of art complete with volcanoes and cosmic dolphins.

Here’s a round-up of some of the action of 2014:

His new work is in collaboration with Defer and titled “Paradise Lost”, which explores their interpretations of paradise. Kamea and Defer first worked together at POW! WOW!

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!
