Days three and four of Pow Wow saw an epic amount of paint applied to brick and concrete throughout Honolulu. From laneways and building facades to major intersections, the Kaka’ako district was transformed from drab grey to a colourful, walking art gallery. Some walls were nearly completed by this point, others still in their early stages, depending on the speed of the artist and the scale of the work. I’m biased, but have to say that the Melbourne contingent of artists were definitely responsible for some of the festival’s highlight walls. Check the photo gallery for examples of the evolution of this Hawaiian enclave and check back for the final installation of flicks from Pow Wow soon!
