Taking place over the course of Chinese New Year and the weekend of Valentine’s Day in the city’s Kakaʻako area, it goes without saying that an air of ingenuity was present, as both local and international artists brought stark, plain walls and panels to life with bold renderings.

See it all firsthand in this video documenting it all from beginning to end.
