AVANT/GARDE DIARIES with JASPER WONG
Best known for their in-depth video portraits of creative individuals and organizing museum exhibitions with the likes of the Beastie Boys, Avant/Garde Diaries took time out of their day to interview our very own, Jasper Wong.
Jasper, founder of POW! WOW!, is a Hawaiian-born artist and designer known for work that honors the day-glo vibes of 1980s America. After some time away from the island, he returned like a prodigal son to bring back some of the things he learned abroad. One of them is the importance of staying analog in an increasingly digital culture – an idea he explored in his pop-up Little Shop of Wonders where he invited school children to rediscover the “simple beauty of just coloring.”
