POW! WOW! in collaboration with SprATX and SXSW will bring together international and local artists to create several mural installations during SXSW in the downtown Austin area. Local artists Mouf, Truth, Lucas Aoki, Ana maria will be featured alongside international artists Rone, Yoskay Yamamoto, Tatiana Suarez, and Meggs. These mural installations aim to not only beautify the urban landscape, but to engage the public by opening to process of creating art and letting them interact with both the artist and the artwork before, during and after the creation of the work. POW! WOW! and SprATX hope to create more murals and visual arts installations annually at SXSW, and to eventually have Art be the fourth arm added to South by Southwest’s Music, Film, and Interactive events.

POW! WOW! SXSW will be starting later this week in Austin so check back with us soon for our full coverage on this promising event.
