As POW! WOW! has ended 1xRUN is proud to showcase dozens of the newly completed murals at yet another year for the record books with dozens of artists completing showstopping murals throughout Ka’kakao and Honolulu.
Among many others, this year found Naturel going big at Fresh Cafe with a massive “Glo’d Up” mural featuring glow-in-the-dark paint. An homage to Naturel’s roots in Guam where the bio-luminescent jellyfish lives, the Washington DC artist wanted to bring his own island feel to Oahu. Other artists getting into the aloha spirit were Bay area artist Hueman, who gave her spin on the Hawaiian goddess Haumea on the Cooke Street Diner, as well as Hawaiian born Slick. Slick’s massive red, white and blue Hawaiian flag covered the nearly 60 foot wall at Fresh Cafe with Queen Liliʻuokalani’s protest letter denouncing United States take over of the Hawaiian Islands.
With a strong showing of female artists colorful murals the ladies had quite a field day as Natalia Rak, Maya Hayuk, Lauren Ys and Tatiana Suarez all brightened up the Ka’akako district with new murals. Not to be outdone, massive walls from D*Face, Sever and brothers Matt and Tristan Eaton also round out this first update for POW! WOW! 2015.
