Participating in the „POW! WOW! HAWAII 2019“ street art festival, after three days of work Ryo Ogawa a.k.a. RoamCouch presented a new mural in the style of a post stamp, calling it „When You Wish Upon A Star – Hawaii”. Ogawa already used the motive in his homeland Japan, so the post stamp framing in Hawaii adds kind of a travel-symbol to it. The mural is located on Pohukaina Street and Keawe Street, Kaka’ako, Oahu.
The Japanese street artist emphasizes what a great experience the participation in the festival was, and thanked everybody who was involved in the process.
“I have gained inspiration from participating in POW! WOW! HAWAII 2019 and have had a chance to learn many important things for my future creations. I considered what my role was for the huge festival and decided to add a stamp as a new element to my past piece “When You Wish Upon A Star – HAWAII”. I have a vivid memory of my mural delighting people and making them smile. I’ve finally realized that painting for people who enjoy seeing my art is everything and I’m very glad to have been a part of this festival for that reason. I appreciate all the support I received from everyone. “Ryo Ogawa a.k.a. RoamCouch
