Pow Wow Hawaii 2014: Behind the Scenes with Wayne White

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Well-known interdisciplinary artist, set designer and puppeteer Wayne White was invited to participate in the Honolulu street art festival Pow Wow Hawaii, but since White found his mural painting skills to be a bit on the rusty side, he decided to set up a make-shift studio in the upstairs of Pow Wow’s Lana Lane headquarters to contribute to the event through a different creative expression. White spent the week of February 8-15 indoors creating wearable, albeit very cumbersome, puppet-masks using cardboard and spray paint. Two of his creations, one with purple skin and a hoop nose ring and the other with a green complexion that matched his hat, represented surreal graffiti writer personas. Meanwhile, the third puppet was a tribute to Elvis with his signature curled lip. Check out our exclusive Hi-Fructose video of White’s puppets in action as well as some behind-the-scenes photos from his temporary Honolulu studio.
