Thinkspace Family artist Cinta Vidal completed a stunning mural at the Honolulu Museum of Art during Pow! Wow! Hawaii this year that we were honored to curate. The above video documents the creation of this mural in addition to an interview with Cinta about her inspiration. We’re excited to see Cinta Vidal in action again in a few weeks as she works on a featured installation for Juxtapozed at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.
Artists were asked to contribute 12 x 12″ pieces leading to a visually conforming display of works. Rounding things out was a showcase for Shok-1 (seen below) and a Homer Simpson x Banksy parody installation by Oak Oak (seen above). – Arrested Motion
Pow! Wow! Exploring The New Contemporary Art Movement is only a few days away and as of 2:00 pm our mainland feet will have touched the sweet island soil. We’re so excited to be returning back to paradise and working with the fantastic people behind Pow! Wow! Hawaii to curate our 4th exhibition at The Honolulu Museum of Art.
Check out the awesome press coverage our preview has received so far from…

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
