Micah Abe In this gallery I wanted to show off Hawaii's art scene while focusing specifically on it’s street art. Each photo shows off pieces of work from an organization called POW! WOW!. This organization puts on an event once a year where they invite artist from around the world to come and paint a mural in Hawaii. This gallery shows murals from 2012 - 2015. The idea behind this gallery is there is beauty in the process. I wanted to emphasize the importance of the creative process an artist goes through while completing their piece, their successes as well as their mistakes. Watching artist work gives you a snippet of what’s going on in their mind. Instead of guessing what the artist was thinking you'll actually know and understand why they did the things they did. A lot of artist actually welcome you to come and watch them, you can talk to them and ask them questions you may have. Many of the photos show the artist using lifts, scaffolding, and ladders to actually reach their wall, that’s just one of the issues artist face and it’s important that people understand the blood, sweat, and tears artist put into their piece.
