Alex DEFER Kizu

DEFER is a very dear artist to KNOW1.  The wall art that strikes awe in every person that walks through our entrance is a product of 18 hours of work, a scissor lift, and a couple quarts of paint.  DEFER hand painted every inch of our walls with our personal scriptures, words and phrases that are significant and meaningful to us.  When speaking about his work Defer states, “My work represents many layers of the human existence brought forth by the many layers of under painting that is exhibited in my work. I also utilize many forms of text – and that pay homage to the graffiti that I was exposed to as a youth growing up in LA. The text is painted in gestural strokes and is expressed as “spiritual language”.  While in Hawaii Defer also painted at the famous Pow Wow Hawaii among artists like Aaron “Woes” Martin and Slick of Disizit.  “Pow Wow is a gathering of contemporary artists that engage with the boarder community in the process and creation of art.”  We are pleased to announce that DEFER will be returning for our grand opening in April to paint live for the community and share his spiritual language.

KNOW1

ALOHA!

 

KNOW 1 is a newly structured local Hawai’i boutique/streetwear/youth-culture type store located in the Windward Mall in Kaneohe, Oahu.  Cozily tucked into the corner of the 2nd floor next to Macy’s, we are open 10AM – 9PM Monday thru Saturday and 10AM – 5PM on Sundays [excluding holiday hours]. Our new formed structure mostly supports local brands. With the current trend of mainland (US) companies making their way oversea to capture our target market, we’re simply striving to keep the Hawai’i economy cycled through itself. Local store, local-tied brands. Current stocked brands consist of Defend HawaiiFittedAdapt, Hawaii’s Finest, Restless Kids, Aloha Kings, The Scholars, Lightyear Vision League, Aloha Family, with much more to come!

People like to ask me “What is Know 1?” What does that mean?” and I simply tell them “KNOW 1 KNOWS”. As the days, weeks, months and years pass, we will have an array of local merchandise with a few mainland brands that we cant help but show love to. As well as the production of more “KNOW1” designs. Be on the lookout for Kaneohe’s dopest shop. And if you are ever in the neighborhood stop by and check out the us out. Know that KNOW 1 CARES ABOUT YOU!
