A lot of talented artists are contributing work to this interesting-looking Lucha Libre-themed event going down in Los Angeles tonight. It’s part art show, part concert, part car show, and part Lucha Libre wrestling. Looks like tickets start at $25.

The Washingtonian just announce dates & locations for the upcoming POW! WOW! DC mural festival in late May. Oh, and is that a photo from last year’s POW! WOW! Long Beach in the article?

TSOTW: Supersonic Art

Unknown-2

I was lucky enough to meet Zach Tutor, the man behind the giant Tumblr-based art website Supersonic Art at POW! WOW! Hawaii 2016.

Haroshi

I was lucky enough to meet Japanese artist Haroshi during POW! WOW! Hawaii 2015. He’s an incredibly talented sculptor, best known for his works created from repurposed skateboards. Here in SoCal, he’s known for working closely with skate brand HUF, amongst others. This artist profile by Magic Lanterns tours his Tokyo studio and sheds light on his process. Via Booooooom TV.
