Audrey Kawasaki POW! WOW! Hawaii Mural Recap

Audrey Kawasaki Pow Wow

Audrey Kawasaki took the time to write out her personal experience of painting “The Siren” a 23 ft by 37ft mural for POW! WOW! Hawaii 2016. The thoughtful piece covers her initial concept and color testing to execution in front of an ever-changing audience. We encourage you to read her recap and view additional behind the scene photos that capture the process of bringing “The Siren” to life.

I’m not much of a writer, but I think it’s important to record my personal experience at Pow! Wow! Hawaii! What began with feeling anxious, nervous, overwhelmed, and even dreadful, ended up becoming one of the most beautiful, eye-opening, life changing experiences ever. – A. Kawasaki

Audrey Kawasaki VNA

Stamped and numbered, this is an edition of 150, with the first sets available to buy in person directly from the gallery. Perfect for last minute presents and personal treats, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice this year, come down for some holiday drinks and a few tunes courtesy of neighborhood superhero DJ, Kii Arens.

Thinkspace Gallery will be throwing the doors wide open from 6pm, but get down early to make sure you get a copy! Please do not line up before 5PM, there’s no reason to do so.

For international fans and those who can’t make the launch, a few issues will be held back to buy online after the launch via VNA (see below, we’re not able to help at this time in anyway for sales outside the gallery).

THIS Saturday, December 19th from 6-9PM

Taking Place At:
Thinkspace Gallery
6009 Washington Blvd.
Culver City, CA 90232

PLEASE NOTE: all sales are going through VNA, we are unable to sell any of this special edition online or via phone. VNA is holding back a small quantity for an online drop to follow later, so please be sure to reach out to them for details. If these all went online, they would sell out in a minute and defeat the whole notion of this special event, which is to give back to Audrey’s hometown of Los Angeles and to help spread the word of VNA here. Thank you for understanding.

Come early if you don’t want to be disappointed!
