The hardworking crew behind POW! WOW! Hawaii just wrapped up their official recap video for this years event. Showing on wall and behind the walls action by the participating artists, this video captures the essence of this world wide famous festival and its unique vibe. Shot from the ground, cherry pickers and drones, the flick gives an unique chance to see artists such as Doze Green, Strok, Natalia Rak, Case Maclaim, Hot Tea, Fafi, Kevin Lyons and many more, getting their work done under the tropical sun. With artists like Olek, Maya Hayuk or Tristan Eaton talking about their personal experiences and the distinctive atmosphere they experienced during their stay in the paradise, this video is great way to round up another successful edition and start warming up for the next years event.

Kid Acne’s new solo show, THE RETURN – on view at GALO ART GALLERY, Turin, Italy until July 5th.
The title of the show “The Wall” explains in one word the most passionate part of most urban contemporary artist today. The public wall space has been a platform to all different kinds of art forms for decades now. From Haring and Basquiat to Banksy and Kaws, thanks to diversity and quality the “Graffiti” or “Mural” art form has well established itself in the contemporary art scene. For the DMV big murals are a way to express their collective creativity and have enough room for each artist to bring in his personal style without getting cramped or overloaded.
