Jun 6, 2013 5:10PM

Jasper Wong 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.”
