Artist Collaboration

To celebrate our talented local artists, this year we have partnered with Oʻahu based artist, Mark “Devour” Visaya. Mark created the piece titled “Unity” specifically for this year’s event.

As Mark explains, “The inspiration for this piece was to convey the feeling of dedication and strength that communities express through difficult times and how by working together we can overcome any obstacle.”  Check out this original piece in our auction below, item #300.

Mark is also one of the many featured local artists in the POW!WOW! The First Decade: From Hawai‘i to the World exhibition, currently on view at Bishop Museum from May 15–September 19, 2021.
