1xRun: Was this piece part of a recent theme, series or show that you had? If so how did it fit into that given grouping?
Angry Woebots: The Masher series is a style I’ve been playing with recently. It’s a lot more loose and raw. I’ve been known to paint these iconic panda characters for years now so this is me just playing with a different technique having fun with it. It was in a group show during Art Basel 2013, so each artist had their own space showing three to four pieces. I showed 3 pieces of work, 2 sold and of the three, two of the pieces were done in this style.

1xRun: When was this piece created and with what materials?
Angry Woebots: This piece was created in early December 2013 with acrylic and ink on wood art board.

1xRUN: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?
Angry Woebots: It came about during the Richmond Mural Project in Virginia. I was given 3 walls and one I just started getting real raw with white and roller stick while buffing the redbrick. I liked the way it looked so instead of buffing the whole wall I left the white raw lines and started the character from there.

1xRUN: What is unique about this piece?
Angry Woebots: Again just the style, I like it. It’s a fun technique.

1xRUN: What has your experience been like with Pow Wow Hawaii previously, who are you most looking forward to seeing paint at this year’s event?
Angry Woebots: I love PowWow Hawaii, I started my career here in 2002 back when there was no community and it was very small. I had moved back from Seattle where I was introduced to a new emerging movement, so I had gained some knowledge and a head start. I had to later leave Hawaii to continue my career. Over the years I have met cats I’ve been fans of, painted, toured and even became good friends with. In the last three years I’ve been touring a lot around the world and many artist I’ve shown with have been invited to PowWow thanks to Jasper Wong’s monster movement. It’s very cool to meet all these talented artist over seas and find out they are coming to Hawaii my hometown to paint.

I struggled hard to start my art career from Hawaii and now many of my favorite artists are rocking out family style back on my Island. I’m hyped to see everyone rock, its gonna be cool to have them bless Hawaii’s walls I’m looking forward to my collaboration with Tatiana Suarez who, I’ve been a fan of and met couple years ago. Looking forward to cats I met over the years to be rocking Hawaii like Ron English, Triston Eaton, Gaia, my crew mate from New Zealand will be here Tanja Jade I’m stoked for her and good friend Skinner. Everyone that’s coming its gonna be insane to meet even more talented cats, my shits always been about meeting gnarly creatives, its why I keep doing what I do. Dave Kinsey I been a fan of, he’s been part of this movement from day one so I can’t wait to see what he smashes. I’m looking forward to all the artist.

1xRUN: Anybody you’d personally like to collaborate with if the opportunity presented itself?
Angry Woebots: Again I’ll be crushing a production with Tatiana Suarez, she’s insanely good I think our styles will mash well together.

1xRUN: As a local Hawaiian artist, what would you like for visiting artists to take away from their time in Hawaii?
Angry Woebots: Just come here and enjoy. PowWow is a different kind of Jam because it’s more personal and intimate. You really get to chop it up with other artist. Most Jams I’ve been to, you fly out, paint a wall maybe meet few of the artist, drink at a bar, paint some more and then you fly home. It’s different for PowWow. All those who have never been, just be ready because you will want to come back and Jam again. PowWowHawaii is the best Jam ever. It’s in Hawaii, nuffsaid=) ha!

1xRUN: Who are some of your favorite Hawaiian artists for the uninitiated?
Angry Woebots: All the homies I’ve done shows with outside Hawaii for sure and honestly most of them are some of my favorites. In no particular order – Slick, Edwin Ushiro, Ekundayo, Mean, Katch, Kamea Hadar, Jasper Wong, Ian Kuali’i, Estria, Prime,Nerves, East3, Aloha Family crew to name a few.

Angry Woebots: Tatiana and I have been throwing sketches back and forth.

1xRUN: How did 2013 wrap up for you?
Angry Woebots: It was amazing went to Asia 3 times multiple countries, rocked in 4 major mural jams, toured most of the year. Life is golden.

1xRUN: Aside from Pow Wow 2014, what are your plans for the new year?
Angry Woebots: I’ll be touring Asia again, Singapore, Jakarta Indonesia, Taipe, Philippines, Tokyo. I’ll be hopping around the U.S. , I got a solo show in Hawaii I’m excited for.

About the Artist

Location: Honolulu, Hawaii

Aaron “Angry Woebots” Martin aka “Woes Martin” was born on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, but spent most of his childhood growing up in Southern California then moving to Nevada before finally landing back into Hawaii during his Junior year in high school. It was during this time, he got into graffiti through hip hop culture saturday morning cartoons, kung fu and comic books always had him involved in creating in some way.

In 1998 while a car accident changed everything; this life-threatening experience inspired him to leave the island once again, this time to Seattle, Washington discovering a new art movement that involved hip hop, punk rock, skating, graffiti, toys and design inspired him to create again. Engulfed by this new movement, Aaron followed along and was hooked. He then left back to Hawaii with a new perspective.

He had his first show in 2002 and has been showing in galleries across the United States, Southeast Asia, South Pacific and Europe. Appeared in many publications within the Art, Designer Toy and Hip Hop communities expanding his fan base even more. Aaron has worked with many companies involving designer toys, design and live works- Kidrobot, Disney/Mindstyle, Kampeon, Converse Red, Samsung, Kicks Hawaii, Fitted Hawaii, FLABSLAB Singapore and In4mation to name a few.

In recent he’s been going back to painting walls using aerosol, rollers and house paint. In recent he’s been involved with, Hieneken Mural Project, Richmond Virginia Mural Project, Artbasel Miami, Art Slam San Antonio Texas and in his home town Honolulu Hawaii PowWow Hawaii. Painting on a larger scale more for the public eye and more to showcase the process of creating a piece of work from the bottom to the top.

Along with his travel success his long time passion for toys has given him the opportunity to create his own, whether it be KidRobots Dunny platform or his own resin sculpture with his partner Palmetto of Silent Stage Gallery he’s covered grounds on all ends, you can find him at Comicon San Diego, Comicon New York, Designer Con Pasadena, Singapore Toy Con rocking custom vinyl toys, Resin figures and collaborations . His focal medium is acrylic paintings on wood and canvas. Using minimal colors and detailed character design, these paintings are usually comprised of stressed out emotional, aggravated pandas or bears. The pandas tend to represent the story of struggle, humble beginnings, and rolling with the punches. Hawaii to the mainland U.S. and across the globe he continues to leave his mark, connecting with other artist and other cultures has been his recent focus, experiencing life to the fullest and building on a worldwide plane.

“Angry Woebots was never a name, it’s a weird name lol, it was a concept of what I created, concept of my art, from the car accident until now, from being in a dark place and coming out of the situation ready to change the negatives in my life, slammed into metal actually woke me up. Doing art was the doorway , I’ll keep going as far as I can. If opportunity’s stopped right now, I’d still be stoked on how far I’ve gotten. I have close homies across the planet, my neighborhood is deep. I never expected to get this far 13 years deep, it was hardly ever about the money, money is great but I look at it as a means of building bridges, travel & culture. I’m on some Anthony Bourdain slash Jacque Cousteau steez. haha. I grew up watching Jacque Cousteau documentary’s and reading libraries of my grandpas national geographic. I loved doing shows because of meeting other artist once I got the formula of travel that’s when all that childhood experiences with my grandpa kicked in. It all came hand in hand watching him paint and create shit then watching all those shows with him I can paint and use my art to travel. It’s a great thing.” “Almost sixteen years in the game since the car accident, crazy. I got the coolest fans, big ups respect.”
