East Honolulu millennials Jasper Wong and Kamea Hadar are leaders of the collective known as POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi. Some of the most visible efforts by the group are the large murals on buildings throughout the Kakaʻako neighborhood of Honolulu.
The paintings of Native Hawaiian women by longtime Honolulu artist Pegge Hopper started as something she did in her spare time. After being fired from an advertising agency, she launched a successful new career with her artwork.
