Mahalo Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2017

Pow! Wow! has grown into an international movement bringing their vision of art and collaboration to cities around the world. Yet, it is Pow! Wow! Hawaii that has an electric energy that can’t be measured as the heart beats harder at home. We are honored to have taken part in Pow! Wow! Hawaii for the fourth consecutive year and we still have some amazing pieces available. Big mahalo to all that make Pow! Wow! Hawaii happen!

Redefined Media did a fantastic job capturing the weeklong event and what Pow! Wow! is really all about.

Thinkspace is honored to once again be exhibiting with the Honolulu Museum of Art School as part of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawai’i mural event.

For the fourth iteration of Thinkspace’s special exhibition ‘POW! WOW! Exploring the New Contemporary Art Movement‘ we have curated an exciting mix of established and up and coming artists from around the world.

This special exhibition will feature close to 100 local and international artists curated by Los Angeles-based gallery Thinkspace. In addition to the group show there will be a featured artist showcase from UK based artist Shok-1 and an installation from Oak Oak out of France. This massive group exhibition serves as a survey of the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement for art lovers on Oahu and the world over via social media, handpicked by one of the movement’s most prolific and respected galleries.

“With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people,” Thinkspace co-founder Andrew Hosner
