Now considered to be one of the island’s largest and most expansive gathering of cultural minds. The event which has taken over the once sleepy area of Kakaako in Honolulu has welcomed approximately 100 artists to the area in a widespread beautification and education on the world of street art and the process of creativity. Originally founded several years back in Hong Kong, founder Jasper Wong brought the show to his hometown in hopes of offering a more hands-on approach to exploring art and engaging the community. This year’s artists include Dabs Myla, Askew, Mark Bode, 123KLAN, the Everfresh Crew, Yue Wue (pictured) Yoskay Yamamoto, SLICK, Angry Woebots, Roid, Shark Toof, Jeff Soto, and more. Aside from a local and global roster of artists each plying their trade diligently around the area, several educational initiatives and events have also been put in place including live panel discussions and musical events as well as the culmination of the eight day event through a massive block party.
