After storming through the eight different cities around the globe, POW! WOW! artists enveloped Hawaii’s commercial district of Kaka'ako with their striking artwork. Since 2011, founder Jasper Wong and lead director Kamea Hadar has been wrangling a bevy of acclaimed international artists to network with local artists in order to foster creativity, collaboration and, of course, exposure in these events. Not to mention, 2017 marks the seventh year for the renowned function to take place in the Aloha State.

Visiting artists included Kevin Lyons, James Jean, Cinta Vidal, OG Slick, Dan Witz, Careaux, Jorman Roukes, Telmo Miel, Maya Hayuk and more. Local creators span Katch, Ckaweeks, Prime, Wooden Wave to name a few. As a whole, the event will feature live art installations, exhibitions, concerts and panel discussions. As far as music appearances go, Steve Aoki, ILoveMakonnen, Autoerotique, Max Styler, and other special guests took the stage.
