POW! WOW! Hawaii 2020: cre808art

This is part of a series of photo galleries in Meniscus Magazine featuring local and international artists at the POW! WOW! Hawaii 2020 festival in Honolulu. Artists took over the city – mostly concentrating on the neighborhood of Kaka’ako – from Feb. 10-15, creating colorful murals indicative of their signature styles. Each gallery features a progression of in-progress artwork up to its completion.

“I love playing with paint, and experimenting with the possibilities, and reactions,” James said on her website. “I enjoy working large. I’m much more of an expressionist than a technical painter.” (photo by Kwai Chan / Meniscus Magazine)
In addition to painting, James runs the “Create A Canvas” (www.createacanvas.net) mobile art parties across Hawaii. (photo by Kwai Chan / Meniscus Magazine)
