  • Art Sux Anyways Photo Show in DTLA

    We recently sponsored a photo show in Los Angeles at Think Tank Gallery.  The show was organized by Art Sux Anyways and raised money for the Music Unites charity, so we were down with that for sure.


    The curated mix of photographers spanned both East and West coasts and was intended to "document the lifestyles that we live and breathe, bringing the tranquil and the disobedient to one location where the viewer can, too, participate in the simplicity of nature and the complexity of adapting to urbanization".  Some of the photographers on display included C.R. Stecyk III, Grant Gutierez, Liz Gilson, and Morgan Phillips, to name a few.



    We were lucky enough to be able to select and feature one of our favorite photographers, trashhand, and it was great to see his shot of the Paris underground on such a large scale.


    We brought the HEX Bus along and maneuvered into a very Austin Powers inspired parking spot for the evening.  Desillusion Magazine was also out back showing videos over their projector.

    The Black Suns provided the music and Golden Road Brewery provided the beer, so it was a good night for all involved.


    Max Ehrlich and Nathan Warner were our distinguished hosts


    So check out some of these fine photographers and be on the lookout for The HEX Bus - you never know where it will turn up next!

  • Vans Propeller: A Masterpiece 50 Years In The Making

    Vns_Propeller_Itunes_Ad.jpg7_Today is the day.  50 years in the making and with over 5 years of footage, Vans releases it's first ever full length skateboarding video!  We got a first look at the world premier held at the beautiful Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles.  Luckily, we got tickets in advance as the premier sold out and was packed full.  Crazy to think that this is Vans' first skate video, but it was well worth the wait.   No one was prepared for what we were about to see...

    Los Angeles world premier flyer.  The first time Propeller was shown anywhere, and the first stop of 9 premiers that were held around the world.


    Classic marquee shot before we headed inside.


    Madness finding a seat in this place!


    Everyone mobbing the bar before the video starts.


    Steve Van Doren making quite the entrance in a mobile Old School High Top.  Why not go big on your big night?


    The man himself, Steve Van Doren saying a few words and many thanks to his crew before bringing out the team.


    The Team: Cab, Caples, Lutheran, Hunt Allen, Walker, Chima, Rowan, Dustin, Rowley, AVE, Barros, Grosso, Pfanner, Berle, Crockett, Hassan, Dill, Cardiel, Trujillo, Hosoi, Barbee, Alva.  What a lineup!  Everyone delivers, too many bangers to remember...can't wait to watch this at least 10 more times!


    One of the best skate teams out there.  So many amazing skaters...Who's part will be your favorite?


    My personal favorite.  #1 - A.V.E.  They saved the best for last, that's for sure.


    That may have been the best skate video I have ever seen.  Greg Hunt created a masterpiece, it took a few years, but you can't rush perfection.  This is a straight-up gnarly skateboarding video.  A modern take on all aspects and generations of skateboarding that will make you want to get on your board and never stop pushing.  Full parts from some of the best in the business.  Check out Propeller today, get amped, lace up your Vans and go skate!


  • Coachella 2015 - Weekend 2 Photo Recap


    We've been to a lot of music festivals and we love them, but Coachella is different.  It's the largest festival in the US, it's in the middle of the desert, and it's always good for a wild ride!  Sit back and enjoy our photo recap of weekend 2 from Coachella 2015.


    And the madness begins...probably the best people watching you will see anywhere!


    The worlds largest catepillar? Trippy art and statues everywhere you looked.


    Captain America was hyped!


    Found a Transformer, he was pretty chill.


    Checked out Ride on the Gobi Stage. Good stuff!


    With over 500,000 people in attendance over the 2 weekends, there wasn't a small crowd anywhere.



    Behind the scenes. Where the artists hang out before and after their sets.



    Started Friday evening with some Steely Dan. So good!



    Everything was lit up at night! Everything.


    Checked out Flying Lotus closing out the Mojave Stage, interesting to say the least...


    Stopped to admire the fancy lamps on our way to the beer garden before AC/DC.


    Some horny AC/DC fans.


    AC/DC still killing it after all these years. So good to finally see them live! Thunderstuck!



    Started Saturday off in a rave tent. Only at Coachella...


    Punk legends Bad Religion ripping it on the main stage.


    Knobs and cables. The devices that make it all work so you can see and hear your favorite bands.



    Took a ride on the biggest portable Ferris Wheel and it was incredible! Coachella from 150 feet.


    Coachella camping. Endless cars and tents. We can only imagine what went down over there at night...


    Caught Hozier playing to a massive crowd just before the sun set for the night.


    Just got into Run The Jewels. They brought out Travis Barker for a few songs and the crowd went off! Check them out for sure.


    Saturday night's lineup was back to back. Started off watching Tyler The Creator get wild on the Outdoor Stage.


    Had to pay our friend The Gaslamp Killer a visit. He played with a full orchestra and it was awesome!


    A personal favorite: Tycho. The chillest music, we got close and loved every minute.


    Jack White was amazing! Straight up rock and roll at it's finest.


    The Weeknd closed out the main stage, going on just before midnight. Been a fan of this guy for some time, great to finally see him live.


    Only a guest or artist pass can get you back here, headed back to main stage on Sunday afternoon to check out Circa Survive.


    Anthony Green of Circa Survive getting the crowd going.


    Drake literally brought a jungle for his stage props.



    8 of this year's limited Coachella posters in the boutique. Of course they were sold out. Also...Coachella pajamas?


    Pretty awesome to see a record store on site! This was the place to be, air conditioning, shade and endless vinyl.


    Rad Artist & Guest Lounge right on a lake. Took it easy on Sunday and cooled it here for a while.


    What a great experience! There is nothing quite like Coachella.  We had a blast and hope you enjoyed the vicarious tour.  See you next year!


  • Neckface - Drinkin' On The Job @ New Image Art

    We're no strangers to New Image Art Gallery, so when they announced a solo NeckFace exhibition on a Friday night, it was on! The name and theme of the show was "Drinkin' On The Job" and it seemed fitting to head down to Hollywood and have a beer while shooting some rad pieces.


    I showed up just before doors opened at seven and was blown away by the huge line to get in, it went all the way down the block and was starting to wrap around the corner. Neckface and free beer on a Friday were the right ingredients to start a party and as the night went on, things got pretty wild!



    The line moved slowly and the entire sidewalk filled up as we waited. It was basically the equivalent of tailgating before a football game, everyone was partying in line before entering and it got even crazier as we went in.



    The gallery was packed, hot, and the free beer was running out fast. I made my way through the drunken crowd and saw tons of awesome Neckface pieces scattered all around the room. I know some of the beer bottles and cans were placed on purpose to go with the theme of the show, but they really started to pile up towards the end of the night. The art seemed to be in it's natural habitat and I'm sure it's exactly what Neckface wanted.


    What do you spend your money on?


    Simple math, it makes sense...


    Are you a beer??? Classic Neckface, hilarious.


    This one cracked me up! Damn, It's dead in here...



    Lots of love on Instagram tonight:  @nastyneckface1 #Neckface #Drinkinonthejob #newimageart





    These custom Neckface kegs were insane! Some interesting characters hanging out around them as well...





    New Image Art was one big party tonight, I bet they didn't know it was going to get this crazy!


    If I get shot, you get shot!!! This was a huge piece that you saw right when you walked inside.


    Even after the gallery closed, the party raged on in the streets of Hollywood. Not sure how the cops allowed this to happen... Only Neckface can bring together such a rowdy crowd for an art show!


    The "Drinkin' On The Job" exhibition is on display at New Image Art (7920 Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood) until September 13th. It won't be as rowdy, but go check out some awesome and hilarious art while you can.


  • Andrew Reynolds "Polaroids"


    Recently, iconic professional skateboarder Andrew Reynolds gave the public a glimpse into his life through a series of his personal Polaroids and 35mm prints. I have skated for over fifteen years and grew up watching “The Boss” Andrew Reynolds kill it year after year. I made sure to be there for opening night of the exhibition at the well-respected Known Gallery on LA’s street-wear mecca: Fairfax Avenue.

    The event was curated by Vice’s Patrick O’Dell who gives his viewers a look into the lives of pro skaters through a video series called Epicly Later’d.  O’Dell found tons of unique photographs stashed away in Boss man’s house and even though Reynolds had no intention of sharing them, O’Dell had to. Reynolds has been shooting photos since he was a young skater and has kept these memories of skating in his driveway, his first Birdhouse tours with Tony Hawk and the shenanigans that went on with the Baker boys. It was amazing to see these photos and imagine the stories that went along with most of them. The exhibit was only open for a few days, so if you missed out, take a look and enjoy!

    IMG_7259As soon as you walk in, the place was packed! Dustin Dollin and tons of pro skaters were there to support.

    IMG_7219Stoked to see this jumbo Polaroid of the infamous Antwuan Dixon right when you walk in. Legend!

    IMG_7261Followed up by two amazing skaters: Slash and Ali Boulala. Classic Ali right there!


    Before The Boss: some amazing childhood photos of Andrew mastering his craft on a skateboard.


    Down the line. Endless Polaroids. Brayden and photos of all the homies.


    Andrew's daughters, Kevin "Spanky" Long and more of Dustin Dollin.


    Erik Ellington and Jerry Hsu Two completely different skaters, right next to each other. Awesome to see!



    Nasty Neckface. Incredible artist, always a part of the skate scene. That wraps up the left side of the exhibit.


    So awesome to see all of the portrait Polaroids all framed together. This was a center piece at the back of the exhibit as you made your way around the room. A lot of these were blown up and used for the show.


    The future of skateboarding. Always good to see youngsters hopping on a board! He's got tricks too!


    The crowd from the back. Tons of support for The Boss from the skateboard community.


    THE BOSS. Passed out with some munchies. I wonder what he thinks looking back at this one. Is this good?



    Shane Heyl. Hard as fuck. Enough said. #shakejunt


    Beagle likes cookies.


    Hmmm...what are you up to Andrew?? Bet there's a story behind this one...




    IMG_7258Here's a good one. Jim Greco after losing a little something. Pain, then surprise and relief.


    Such a great event and I hope more skaters put on similar shows. This was a photographic version of Epicly Later'd, each photo told a story about some point in the life of Andrew Reynolds. So glad that Patrick O'Dell decided to put this together and gave us a rare look at some of the crazy times in Andrew's life. It's always so inspiring to see the skateboard community come together and support each other. Andrew is 36 and reached legend status years ago, don't ever stop doing what you love! Skateboarding is my passion, it's the best thing ever. This show definitely confirmed how much I love skating and got me stoked to get out there and skate.

  • HEX x Option-G Release And Book Signing At MOCA


    Recently we had the pleasure of spending some time with artist, Cole Gerst, of Option-G Communications at The Museum Of Contemporary Art (MOCA) for a book signing and release of our collaborative collection in Los Angeles. The museum was also opening their Mike Kelley exhibit, so we were in good company.


    Cole hails from Portland these days, but took some time out of his busy schedule to jump down to LA for the event.  The place looked great and was well stocked with HEX x Option-G gear as well as Cole's latest book, Buckminster Fuller: Poet Of Geometry.

    We assume that, since you are here reading this, you know something about HEX.  As for Cole, he is best known as an artist and illustrator widely credited for the resurgence of the "gig" poster for clients like House Of Blues, Modest Mouse, Beck, The Shins, Bright Eyes, and Interpol.


    With our love of the arts and Cole's incredible aesthetic, a collaboration was a no-brainer. The concept began with a traditional toile pulled into HEX’s world of music, art, design, and architecture. The result was “take your pleasure seriously”.  A daydream of leaving life in the city and escaping to the cabin in the woods….relaxing, listening to music and contemplating mystical creatures, geometry and architecture.

    Cole saw some old friends and new fans, signed books and sold bags until all were satisfied.  We hope you were able to make it out to this special event.  However, in case you weren't, you can get the vibe from these images and video clip.  See you next time and thanks to MOCA for being great hosts.
