"The piece, like most of my work, is exploring interconnectedness and non-duality. I'm drawn to the ocean as a subject not only for its aesthetic value and depth but also for the symbolic subtleties it can represent when trying to portray an idea." - Ricky Lee Gordon

About POW! WOW!
POW! – It’s the impact that art has on a person.
WOW! – It’s reaction that art has on a viewer.
Together they form POW WOW, which is a term that describes a gathering that celebrates culture, music and art.
Centered around a week-long event in Hawaii, POW! WOW! has grown into a global network of artists and organizes gallery shows, lecture series, schools for art and music, mural projects, a large creative space named Lana Lane Studios, concerts, and live art installations across the globe. The central event takes place during Valentine’s Day week in February in the Kaka’ako district of Honolulu, and brings over a hundred international and local artist together to create murals and other forms of art. The festival is expanding to cities and countries such as Taiwan, Long Beach, Israel, Singapore, Jamaica, Washington D.C., Guam, New Zealand, Germany and more.

Ricky is a self-taught artist born in Johannesburg in 1984 and now working and living in Cape Town South Africa. He is well known for his large-scale murals that can be seen in cities all over the world, from Cape Town to Istanbul and Kathmandu, he paints under the pseudonym Freddy Sam. His murals focus on bringing to light relevant social issues, exploring the nature of man in present society, in history and in nature. His achievements in public art have made it on CNN, Mail & Guardian’s ‘200 young people in SA who make a difference’ and National Geographic’s list of ‘11 street art greats’ alongside the likes of Banksy.
Ricky is also known for his curatorial work and creative activism.
He is a co founder of Colour Ikamva an art outreach program designed to Re-imagine education through creativity and self-empowerment and was the founder of A WORD OF ART Residency, Gallery and project space witch he opened in 2008 and later closed in 2014
In recent years Ricky closed his organizations down to solely focus on his studio practice with oil painting as a chosen medium.
Teaching himself this process has become the antithesis of his street work as it allows for a more meditative environment to create.
Ricky has gained the attention of and received commissions from private collectors and international organizations like WWF, Google, Doctors Without Borders and more.
