  • 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.

    Neck_Flier

    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?

    3P1A9794

    Simple math, it makes sense...

    3P1A9795

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

    3P1A9812

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

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

    3P1A9802

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

    3P1A9844

    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!

    3P1A9847

    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"

    IMG_7241

    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.

    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?

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

    IMG_7239

    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

    IMG_1803

    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.

    IMG_1807cc

    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.

    IMG_1849cc

    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.

  • HEX At Modernism Week

    If you ask me, nothing quite compares with a road trip.  Well, maybe not just any road trip, but a good one is tough to beat for sure.  We took The HEX Bus out over some remnants of Route 66 to the annual minimalist mecca known as Modernism Week Palm Springs.

    For all of you who are wondering, our 1963 made the 2 1/2 hour drive with flying colors.  We made friends the whole way, as evidenced by all the many thumbs up , smiles, and nods of respect.  We were boss in The Bus.

    IMG_9477

    We checked out some serious standouts in the world of California Modern design ranging from the famous Palm Springs Visitor Center with its impossibly cantilevered roof, to the experimental tract of Alexander Steel homes, to some great examples of restoration in Racquet Club Estates, to examples of Neutra and Donald Wexler.

    This was the town of the Rat Pack - Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Dean Martin, and a few less-savory folks as well.  Legend has it that The Chairman Of The Board would raise his flags high at his Twin Palms estate so all his friends knew if he was home and ready to party.

    We posted The HEX Bus up on Palm Canyon Drive Thursday night outside of BAR and sold some special HEX gear and chewed the fat with some people who seemed as though their whole mission in life was to talk to only us.

    The next day, our rolling pop-up-shop moved to the Pre-Fab marketplace put on by Modernism Week.  This was great to see all the advances in design and modular building.  There happened to be a vintage car auction going on right across the street that brought many people over to try to entice us to sell our beloved bus, but the answer was always "No."IMG_9713

    In the end, we enjoyed a relaxing night at the Ace Hotel - I would highly recommend the orange-riccotta pancakes - saw some great design and architecture and got to visit some of our favorite stores like Just Fabulous, Modernway, and Just Modern.  But beyond all this, we got to connect at a very personal level with people who enjoy great design, just like we do and spread the word about HEX all over town.

  • HEX x Greenlabel Skate Night in NYC

    Skateboarding during Winter in NYC is not easy or pleasant - especially after a snowstorm.  But thanks to KCDC Skate Shop, HEX, and Green Label Exclusives, we made it possible last night. It was a sub-zero evening outside, but the unassuming "secret" space at 99 Attorney St. in the Lower East Side of Manhattan was plenty warm and packed with party goers, pro skaters, industry folk and celebs all watching the shred session on the 5-foot-high, 14-foot-wide mini ramp built exclusively for the night. Bumping tracks provided by Sean C and LV got the crowd dancing and bobbing their heads.

    The man of the night was Theotis Beasley, and he was there signing his HEX collab gear (backpack and phone case) and chopping it up with the crowd.It was a fun night indeed, thanks to everyone who made it out!The ramp will remain in the space for 4 weeks of events and skateboard lessons plus endless skate sessions by the hungry NY skate community. HEX and Green Label are sponsoring the space during this time. If you're in NYC and would like a lesson, contact KCDC Skate Shop in Williamsburg Brooklyn for more info.

  • HEX x I Crave Love! - A solo show by This Means Mar at LAB ART

    Corrupted memory cards suck! As much as we love to shoot film here at HEX, there are times when it is just not plausible to do so...hence two Thursday nights ago for the opening of our good friend and artist extraordinaire This Means Mar's solo show at LAB ART, entitled I Crave Love! There were just so many cool and beautiful works of art on hand (not to mention people) that if we were shooting film our developing fees would've been a fortune. Although, looking back on it now, we really wish we would have-as our super technologically advanced 64GB Compactflash memory card decided to take a dive off the deep end thus taking all of our beautiful imagery and memories from Mar's great show with it. Anyhow, that's enough griping from us and lesson learned. Below are some photos we salvaged from our iPhone and Minx Society, so, please take a moment and enjoy this epic night as much as we did! It seriously was amazing and we couldn't have been more stoked to support Mars and be a sponsor for this amazing event...thank you!


    One of our favorites!


    LAB ART was absolutely packed to the gills, and rightfully so, Mars work is insane!

    Hors d'oeuvres and Dj's...


    Renowned artist Gregory Siff and Mike Miller (above) in the house. They were quite stoked on our new Gallery product line, as was Omarion (below)...


    Fashion slave...


    Bringing whole new meaning to the term "Work-a-holic".


    The man of the hour himself, Mar, with good friend and art collector James Fay.

    Who craves love, we all crave love... I Crave Love!

    *Special thanks to Mar and LAB ART for allowing us to be a part of this illustrious event...now where's our Homer print?... ;)
