POW! WOW! is a gathering of contemporary artists that engages with the broader community in the process and creation of art.
Originally founded in Hawaii, in 2015 POW! WOW! began traveling to other markets to spread the movement.
June 2016 marked the first POW! WOW! in Washington DC (My hometown) and a huge impact for street art in the DC area.

Highsnobiety TV commissioned me to shoot this piece on James Jean in June 2015.
In it he discusses the idea of celebrity as an artist as well as his process for creating the immersive worlds that make up his body of work.

February 2015, I was invited to Honolulu for the Pow! Wow! Hawaii mural festival. In the true collaborative spirit of Pow! Wow! my task was simple. Capture some moments from the festival and post the videos afterwards. No rules and no pressure. Filming with my new friends in Hawaii was one of the most fulfilling and fun gigs I've ever had the fortune to be sent on.

FIRE EYES is a conceptual collaborative project between LEAN and Natural Curiosities, an art manufacturer here in Los Angeles.
When we first met with NC, our goal was simple. We wanted to create physical art, using nature as a medium. We wanted to create a stunning and dynamic visual piece that would capture the moment of creation in a way that the human eye couldn't.
This video is the culmination of our efforts.
This video came to us from another director, who had initially hired just Luke to shoot this project. After some twists and turns, it ended up in our lap as raw footage to be turned into a video. In the end, this is what Luke and I came up with.
Natural Curiosities is an art manufacturer, based out of Echo Park in Los Angeles, CA. Headed up by Creative Director Christopher Wilcox, NC is a group of creative artisans who grant accessibility to the world of art and design through their hand-crafted pieces.
Co-Directed with Luke Hanlein as LEAN
