POW! WOW! HAWAII! 2016 Day 4.

This week, February 6th through the 14th, artists from around the world are currently participating in POW! WOW! HAWAII! 2016.  The week-long street art festival features gallery shows, lecture series, schools for art and music, mural projects, concerts and live art installations.  The event also focuses on using art to bring communities together and the feeling of friendship, family and art is very much alive here in Kaka’ako, Honolulu.

The scenes above:  Tatiana Suarez begins her collaboration with Kevin Lyons.  Christina Angelina continues to make progress on her massive wall.  Audrey Kawasaki continues to blow my mind with her insanely incredible wall.  Ricky Lee Gordon reaches the half-way point in his mural.  Hauser continues to kill it with one of the best colored walls I’ve ever seen.  Usugrow begins his mural and below the photograph of him so does Lauren YS.  Kevin Lyons’s very colorful wall in progress.  A detail shot of Defer’s finished wall.

San Francisco based artist Velia De Iuliis draws her inspiration from an inherent curiosity for all living things, and her colorful gouache illustrations are a tribute to the animals that she admires. Her work interprets their energy into abstract compositions that juxtapose the organic flow of nature with naturally occurring geometric forms like diamonds, ellipses and diagonal lines. “My work reflects what has fascinated me throughout my life. Themes of symmetry and patterns found in nature as well as nature itself are the avenues that both inspire and captivate me. Science, philosophy and art are tightly bound but to better understand humanity I have to first understand the natural world we live in, she says.

Beautiful Natural Women Digital Paintings

Krisztian Tejfel is a Hungarian painter and photographer. He mostly paints women’s portrait, often leaving his creations with the look of a “work unfinished”. He is educated in traditional painting and began exploring digital painting a few years ago. First he starts sketching the face of the woman with a pencil, then he adds details and colors digitally. His female portraits are characterized by their melancholic look with a pinch of surrealism.
