Line Skis 2009

02 January 2009, 16.30 | Posted in skiing | 1 comment »

Add to that consistent praise from the Ski rags (particularly for the Prophet) and you have yourself a high art product with some pretty high performance. Or a high performance product with some pretty high art, however you wish to view it. 2009 brings new editions of the popular Prophet, and some stellar graphics.

eS x Adrian Blanca Traveling Art Exhbition – New York Recap

17 November 2008, 21.36 | Posted in Skateboarding | No comments »

Eight countries, 5,000 eyes, hundreds of paint brushes, thousands of hours of painting, 6,500 glasses of Sangria and beer, 3,000 tapas and almost 7,000 miles later, the éS Adrian Blanca Traveling Art Exhibition has come to an end.

For the last three months, Adrian Blanca has been on a whirlwind art tour to celebrate his collaboration with éS. At each tour stop, spectators were able to watch Adrian create his visual madness live with permanent installations fashioned in all eight locations: One Off in Stockholm, Arrival departure in Amsterdam, Slam City Skates in London, Street Machine in Paris, Fish and Chips in Antwerp, Doubleight in Munich and the éS showroom in Barcelona. The tour finally concludes on US soil at the éS Showroom in New York City.

Adrian first picked up a skateboard in the mid-’90s, and this love for skateboard culture can be seen in his incredibly intricate drawings that he has created over the years for a number of influential magazines and prominent galleries in Europe. A true fan of éS for years—in particular the Accel, which he has used on numerous occasions as a canvas for his art—it came as no surprise that Adrian chose to launch his collection with the Acell TTL and TT Deluxe

The éS x Adrian Blanca exhibition is open daily from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and runs thru Friday, November 21, 2008 at the éS Showroom on 29 Greene St. in NYC.

Many more images and a video made up of over 500 artworks by the artist follow after the jump.

highsnobiety - Amber B. + Element Skateboards + Colette

Artist Amber B. got together with Element Skateboards to present her upcoming exhibition at Parisian concept store Colette. 

“The window display will be erected over the Halloween holiday from the 27th of October with the creative inspiration being centered around the Pagan Halloween game called “Puicini Saucers.” The game originated in Ireland, where a person could foresee his future by choosing one of the ingredients found on the Puicini Saucers while blindfolded. A Coin denotes wealth, Water foresees travel, Rosary Beads mean marriage or holy orders, and Earth predicts death… Spooky! The theme of Halloween is carried through the entire display with plenty of ghouls and teeth to be seen, while the entire room will be sewn felt, with the main feature being a huge sewn creature by the name of Mr. Autumn.” Via Sneaker Freaker.

Colette will be offering a limited edition Mr. Autumn skateboard deck, that was produced in collaboration with Element Skateboards and a fan zine by Amber B.
