So today was the last official day of POW! WOW! LONG BEACH 2016 and it has all gone really well. More amazing art has come to life across the beautiful city. Here are some of my recent photos of the process. [View Gallery]
Tonight the new Vitality and Verve group exhibition presented by POW! WOW! and Thinkspace Gallery opens up at LBMA. It’s not public, tickets or membership are required. Open to the public as of tomorrow. It’s absolutely amazing. Deets for this evening’s event are here and the general exhibition info is here.
Please pardon the lack of posts lately, I’ve been quite busy with POW! WOW! LONG BEACH 2016 this week. The Mayor of Long Beach, Dr. Robert Garcia, officially launched the event yesterday morning, in front of the Tristan Eaton and James Jean murals from last year’s event, at The Varden hotel. Local papers Long Beach Post and the Press Telegram both covered the event.
You might have noticed I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days, as I’ve been so incredibly busy setting up for POW! WOW! LONG BEACH 2016 next week. Some artists have already begun painting their murals, which is exciting. You can follow that on Instagram if you want. In other news, this design prototype Spector, my buddy Jeff Hamada posted recently, really appeals to me. Apparently Wired called it “Shazam for fonts.” Via Booooooom.
An impressive new print from Los Angeles-based artist CRYPTIK drops tomorrow at 8am PST!

Check out this amazing typographic public artwork by artist DAKU in New Delhi, India. The lettering changes throughout the day as the sun moves. Impressive! Via Booooooom where you can see more photos.
