Moving from outdoor murals to canvas, the participating artists at Pow Wow Hawaii exhibit an extraordinary range of style and technique. Will Barras, for example, turned poured paint, spray paint, and a bit of water into this magnificent abstraction.
Barras, a founding member of the Scrawl Collective (with Mr. Jago and Steff) is known for his "liquid abstraction" â€”Click the thumbs and you'll see exactly how Barras' working movements yield just that effect. From there, the artist's figures often emerge. However, in this case, the painting is about the interaction of color, texture, and how both run together on the canvas.
