Ed Templeton’s exhibition at the Huntington Beach Art Center was an expansive survey of the artist’s work from the last several years to present. The show featured some of his most iconic pictures, paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces spread throughout the space in Templeton’s dynamic installation style. Dominating the show were his “Teenage Kissers,” “The Seconds Pass,” “Wires Crossed” and “Huntington Beach” series, which is an ongoing look into his backyard’s beach culture and suburban,

Located in the high plateaus in the center of Mexico is CDMX, more widely known as Ciudad de Mexico or Mexico City. As one of the oldest and most populous cities in North America it is one of the most important cultural centers in the world, bringing together an eclectic mix of food, art, music and architecture. The RVCA skate team and friends found themselves drawn there in search of diverse and untapped spots across the 16 boroughs. The days were spent exploring the city, skating, eating tacos on handmade tortillas, fresh cut fruit with chile salt and drinking hibiscus iced tea. With colorful homes along the hills, ancient cathedrals, colonial style architecture and tree lined parks, CDMX proved itself the perfect backdrop for an array of great skate spots, good times with friends and adventures they’ll never forget. We’re all looking forward to getting back to days like these.
The main event of RVCAloha 2019 took place December 4th and was a night to remember. The evening’s exhibition, entitled ‘The #HammerheadShow’, was a unique exhibition showcasing of artwork dedicated to Christian Hosoi, inspired by his long legacy in skateboarding and the original Hammerhead deck painted by Keith Haring for Christian back in 1986. The show featured over 50 artists from around the world, ranging from close friends of the legendary skateboarder, to those who idolized him and his iconic style from afar. Replicas of the original hammerhead deck were provided to each artist to paint and each was hung along with an accompanying canvas, to create a one of a kind collection and art show. Proceeds from the purchase of each work will be donated to charitable causes of the artists’ and Christian’s choice.
