Twenty-nine international street artists and muralists convene in Long Beach, CA for POW! WOW! Long Beach 2016, a street art festival designed to boost the city’s creative capital, and inspire cultural storytelling. Originally conceived in Honolulu, HI, POW! WOW! Long Beach brings the diverse perspectives of talented artists to Southern California inviting them to taking over bare walls, theater spaces, and icons such as the Aquarium of the Pacific, and the Long Beach Convention Center during a one week period which began on July 11th. Culminating on Sunday, July 17th, POW! WOW! Long Beach welcomes the public to partake in the festivities this weekend as artists finalize their large-format works of art. One of the most anticipated works comes from artist Sean Yoro whose water murals painted while standing on paddleboards and completed on surfaces ranging from icebergs to rusting shipwrecked vessels have gained him international acclaim. Yoro is currently completing his largest work to-date for POW! WOW! Long Beach and can be seen under the Queensway Bridge.
