To quote the founder of the POW! WOW! organisation Jasper Wong, „there are 3 main missions of the POW! WOW! concept; One, it is to bring people together through creative pursuits. Two, To educate the youth and public about art and music through workshops, programming, and schools. Three, To beautify communities with art and color”. With this ethos and some support from the Montana-Cans distribution partner Hangaram, the event has managed to go global and do exactly what it has set out to do.
The most recent edition took place in Korea. From September 23rd to the 30th, eight days of art making took place in seven different locations throughout Seoul (Sangdo-dong, Yeonnam-dong, Mullae-dong, Hongdae, Sookmyung Womens’ University, Hapjeong, Janghanpyeong).
Take a moment to look through the jungle of high rise and foot traffic to see what the teams produced here:
ANDREW HEM, CRYPTIK, GRAFFLEX, JASPER WONG, JAY FLOW, LAURENCE VALLIERES, PERSUE, ROYYAL DOG, SIXCOIN, TRISTAN EATON, XEVA & YOONHYUP
