Next up is this beautiful Asian themed mural by Katch 1 for Pow Wow Hawaii 2016. Katch was raised in Hawaii and discovered his love for graffiti and skateboarding as a pre-teen. He moved to San Francisco and immersed himself into the cutting Bay Area graffiti scene. He later moved to Los Angeles and painted in some of LA’s most famous graffiti yards. Today he resides in Hawaii and draws artwork and does filming and editing for his skateboarding company Natural Koncept.  He can also be found at Banzai Tattoo Shop in Pearl city where he is a full time tattoo artist.
