Jasper Wong has been throwing massive street art gatherings for the last five years, starting in Hong Kong, moving to Hawaii, and this year, for the first time, in Taiwan. The festival is called POW!

Fuzi has been roaming all over the globe, primarily leaving ink on peoples skin in untraditional settings aka not tattoo parlors. The Parisian artist headed to Taiwan for the first time, which was well documented in this new video.

We certainly did when we were there. How could you resist?

Taipei-based Han Cheng Yeh has a fantastic ability to capture the mood of a scene. Paired with an eye for color and composition, the photographer's visual style is on-point.
