The curtains have closed on the second annual POW! WOW! Long Beach event after an exciting showing from artists from all around the globe. The event saw scores of contemporary artists gathering around the vibrant Long Beach community to produce live mural paintings, art exhibitions, talks and more.
The event had featured artists Pantonio, Ernest Zacharevic, Aaron Li-Hill, Sarah Joncas and Cinta Vidal migrating to Long Beach for the creation of fantastic murals throughout the city. “The amount of support that the city has shown is incredible and we look forward to another great event,” said POW! WOW! founder and director Jasper Wong – a testament to the growing integration of global art into mainstream culture.
In addition to the mural events hosted by POW! WOW!, talks about working in art were hosted by creative field experts Martha Cooper, Ernest Zacharevic, Jeff Staple and Sean Yoro.
