Spenser Little Brings His Wire Magic to Honolulu for POW! WOW! HAWAII

To say Spenser Little made some new fans this past week would be a vast understatement. This magician of wire and so many other mediums has finally had the international spotlight shined on him and we could not be more excited for him. He never stopped while in Honolulu for POW! WOW! Hawai’i and put up work all over the island and left smiles on faces wherever he went. We got him added on to the festival at the 11th hour and he could not have been a better fit to the aloha lifestyle of POW! WOW!

Trust us, his incomparable wit drenched wire work is just the tip of his creative iceberg. Get ready for loads of goodness ahead from this gentle giant. All hail Mongo, his time has come!

POW! WOW! Hawai’i 2018 is a wrap and I can’t say mahalo enough to all that make the POW! WOW! machine run so strong. So very honored to be a part of the extended POW! WOW! family and to be able to bring out members of our Thinkspace Family each year makes it all the more special.

Special thanks to Jasper, Kamea, Gress and Amy for being so amazing.

This year we invited out James Bullough (who collaborated with Ricky Watts), Dulk, Icy and Sot, Laurence Vallieres, Sandra Chevrier, Tran Nguyen and Spenser Little. To say we are proud of them and the works they created while on the island would be a vast understatement. Each embraced the POW! WOW! spirit and energy in a big, big way. So happy to have them all a part of our Family and looking forward to big things ahead with each in the coming years.

A big shout out goes to the POW! WOW! Hawaii B-Team squad of Christopher Konecki and Carly Ealey who came out to hang on their own dime and ended up rocking two incredible walls during the fest. The first of which is shared below. They just finished the other in the wee hours of last eve (pic to follow soon). So rad to have them both out on the island!

Until next year, aloha!
