Murals with POW! Murals that WOW!

BY KAMEA HADAR
@ VOL 129 ON OCT 28, 2015

For a muralist, a great white wall is but an opportunity, and this is no different for designer/artistic director Kamea Hadar. Get psyched to hear Kamea Hadar who came to PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 129, all in all the way from Hawaii to speak on his role as co-lead director of Pow! Wow! — a global artists gathering set in cities all over the world.


壁画家にとって真っ白な大きな壁は、創作意欲をかきたてられる絶好のキャンバスです。デザイナーで美術監督のKamea Hadarさんにとってももちろん同じ。壁を前にすると、体が勝手に動いて描き切ってしまいます。ハワイを拠点に行われているコンテンポラリーアートのソーシャルイベント・Pow! Wow!の創立者のひとりであるKamea Hadarさんが、 Pow! Wow!でのご自身の活動や役割について披露されています。グローバルなアーティストがこぞって参加するPow! Wow!は世界各地で勢力的に展開中で、日本でも開催されました。
