As if taking over Hawaii with amazing murals by amazing street artists earlier this year wasn't enough, POW! WOW! has decided to go bigger in 2014 by following up POW! WOW! Hawaii 2014 with another festival: POW! WOW! Taiwan.
POW! WOW! Taiwan kicks off on May 28 in Taipei City and runs through June 3. The festival will follow the same formula from the Hawaii event with international artists flying in to live and work with a new group of talented local artists in a new city. The roster of visiting artists includes Aaron De La Cruz, Apex, Brendan Monroe, Graphic Airlines, INSA, James Jean, Jasper Wong, Jeff Hamada, Kristen Farr, Kamea Hadar, Madsteez, Rone, Sheryo, Skewville, Will Barras, Woes Martin, and Yok. They will join Tawainese artists Dabs Bobo, Candy Bird, Cherng, Chou Yi, Colasa, CYH Jason, Debe, Dzus, Easy, FlyFlyFly, Kleos, HANIBOI, Mr. Ogay, Reach, Saym, Seazk, Smoky, Optimist, Vita Yang, Xue, and Zishi in mural painting, forum discussions, exhibitions, and other events to celebrate street art culture and the spirit of collaboration.
