Having spent four festivals covering Hawaii with fantastic street art and murals POW! WOW! returned to Asia (the first POW! WOW! was held in Hong Kong) for their inaugural Taiwan festival. Artists from around the globe joined local Taiwanese artists to create murals around Taipei including popular locations like the Taipei Zoo, Tugnan University, Songshan Cultural Park, Ximen and many others.
Through bouts of relentless rain and the humid, exasperating heat artists such as James Jean, Aaron De La Cruz, Madsteez, Apex, INSA, Rone, Sheryo, Yok, Woes, Skewville and Brendan Monroe fought the elements alongside local art legends Reach, Mr. Ogay, Colasa Seazk, Saym Dabs, Bobo and more to put up all kinds of gorgeous, stunning murals.
During all this there were lectures by BOOOOOOOM!, Hypebeast and 1xRun plus parties with DJ Neil Armstrong and concerts (and lots of delicious looking food, too).
