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.

Full article on Audrey Kawasaki’s Blog. 

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

In a collaboration with Branded Arts, this past week the Low Bros duo have been painting a bright mural in Echo Park on the wall of 88monks. The two have been in town for their upcoming show ‘Wasted Youth’ at Thinkspace Gallery,  opening Saturday, June 20th; and next up they’ll be transforming the inside of Long Beach Museum of Art for ‘Vitality and Verve’. Although a long way from home, these two hard-working artists are far from being on a vacation.

Special thanks to Graphaids and Montana Cans for the deal on supplies.
