Arrested Motion have just posted a recap of many of the murals that went up on the streets of Kaka’ako during POW WOW 2013. The photos were supplied by the very talented Brandon Shigeta, who also works for Hypebeast, and is a certified architect no less. Check out all the AM coverage of POW WOW 2013 here.
Instagram is one of the best ways to follow all the amazing art going up on the streets of Kaka’ako this week. The POW WOW HAWAII instagram page is probably your best bet, but there’s tons more out there, especially if you follow the contributing artists such as Jeff Hamada, Hannah Stouffer, Jeff Soto, Sam Rodriguez, Shark Toof, Wu Yue, and Nychos. There are tons of talented creative folks out here!

I posted about the incredible project by Spanish collective Boa Mistura in São Paulo earlier this year. They painted huge, bright murals which read words like “beauty” and “sweetness” across several buildings, when viewed from the right perspective.

I’ve posted a little bit of ROA’s work here in LA before. Here’s a nice feature of ROA’s latest work in
Perth, Western Australia, over on Wooster Collective. Even though I’ve never actually lived in “the most remote city on Earth,” it’s sort of my hometown in a funny way. It’s a beautiful place. Here are some more West Australia photos from a trip there last year. EDIT: My mother very kindly pointed out that 2/3 of those photos are definitely in Sydney. Here’s a real photo of ROA in West Australia.
