Flat425: A Peek At Chad Muska’s “Deconstructionism”

19 July 2012, 07.32 | Posted in Art, Skateboarding | 3 comments »

Muska Gallery LA 10

The other night I had the chance to get a sneak peek at Chad Muska’s new Los Angeles art space, Flat425, which is currently functioning as Muska’s studio and a showcase for his latest body of work titled “Deconstructionism”. As the name suggests, all the pieces are based around breaking down materials and reconstructing them to create something new. Which seems to reflect what Muska is going through in his own life. For example one of the pieces is six months worth of shredded information dumped on a canvas and soaked in resin. It is a work in progress in which new pieces are constantly being added, and well… probably destroyed. If you happen to be in the LA area and would like to take a look for yourself you can make an appointment at info@flat425.com. To keep track of what is currently happening inside the studio you can check out the Flat425 Facebook page or Chad Muska’s page.

Poler Drops Spring Line

The Camera Cooler

Adventure-based brand, Poler recently dropped their first round of summer stuff including 4 different bags, a Mizu water bottle, and a slew of new tees. One item I am particularly excited about is “The Camera Cooler”. I’m normally stuck with a big backpack when lugging camera gear around, but this smaller bag allows you to fit an SLR and a camera lens inside without the extra bulk… perfect for mini photo missions. Don’t shoot photos? Well the bag also doubles as an cooler, conveniently holding a six-pack. Get a look at more of their new product after the jump and head to PolerStuff.com to check out the rest of their gear and get your fill of #campvibes.
