WOW! Familia Video shows the past, present and future of the POW WOW! A cool video, shot in Hawaii. Founder of the event was Jasper Wong and Director of the video was Santiago Arbelaez. Video starts out showing a blank wall that has no voice. When artists gather together to paint interesting murals on it, it gives the wall a voice representative of all the artists who contribute time and talent. Graffiti which was once widely condemed is now recognised as a credible art form. Rather than making a neighbourhood look run-down, it tends to lift the spirits of the people living there. These walls are impressive for their sheer scope, making them an in-your-face endeavour. All the artists feel a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood; each member contributes artistry and the cumulative effort makes them come together as a family.
