Innocnts x Globe // Artist Series Deck Release

Last Friday we officially launched our collaboration with GLOBE at General Admission in Venice, CA. King Harbor beer was flowing like the salmon of Capistrano, latin beats by Alf Alpha enticed the crowd to shake it and the building almost came down when Divola performed. The cops even payed a visit and might have had something to do with our premature finish. Regardless we had a blast and appreciate those that made it out! Our "Friends With Benefits" installation remains up for a few more weeks at General Admission with the full range of decks and tees available.

THE DECKS

We curated a 3 deck artist series for GLOBE showcasing artwork from our friends Jose Aurajo, Rye Purvis and Stacy Kranitz. The series has a nice range of shapes ideal for liquor store runs to skatepark sessions. All decks are a limited run of 50 per artist with etched artist's name and numbering on each deck. 

JOSE ARAUJO // 80'S SINGLE KICK

- Limited numbered edition of 50

- 9.25" x 29.75" x 15.5” wheelbase

- Resin-7 hard rock maple

- Mellow concave

Jose Araujo was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Jose’s traditional fine line black / grey and bold traditional tattoo work draws influence from elements of Americana, Chicano art, LA gang writing, and prison art from various time periods. His gallery practice pulls from similar resources combining Chicano art with traditional American imagery and the use of handwritten typography to help covey various inner-city sentiments. Jose maintains a regular position at Mid Town Tattoo in Los Angeles taking appointments in between raising his family in nearby Mid City.


RYE PURVIS // LIQUOR STORE CRUISER

- Limited numbered edition of 50

- 7.75" x 30.5" x 14” wheelbase

- Resin-7 hard rock maple

- Medium side to side concave, full nose and tail

- Built-in bottle opener

Rye Purvis was born in New Mexico and currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Rye’s contemporary still life paintings depict everyday objects and moments. The work acts as representational portraiture commenting on commercial vices and personal adventures in a satirical fashion. Optimistic, upbeat colors coincide with corner store items, oldschool automobiles, and characters based on Rye’s friends and her surroundings giving homage to an underbelly that exists and prospers within her Bay Area and New Mexican desert experience. Rye graduated with a BFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute.


STACY KRANITZ // MODERN DOUBLE KICK

- Limited numbered edition of 50

- 8.25" x 32" x 14.25” wheelbase

- Resin-7 hard rock maple

- Full concave

Stacy Kranitz was born in Kentucky and currently lives and works wherever her interests lead her. Stacy’s photography explores history, representation and otherness within the documentary tradition. She uses photography to open up a narrative that confronts our understanding of culture; one poised between notions of what is right and what is wrong. Stacy received a BFA from New York University and an MFA from the University of California, Irvine. Her work has been featured in publications including Adbusters, Elle, Granta, Mother Jones, New York Times Magazine, Oxford American, Rolling Stone, Vice, and Wired.

 
Recap : We Are The Romantic Ones

We came, we loved, we conquered. This past Saint Valentine's Day we curated a group exhibition of emotive art from some of our favorite people. It was a last minute show only confirmed just days prior to it's opening and hung the day of. And as ephemeral as LA graffiti, it was gone the next day. Just a one night exhibition graciously hosted by Shepard Fairey's gallery Subliminal Projects in Echo Park, California. Many thanks to our dudes Alf Alpha and Kapeesh for providing the timely sonic vibes. Much appreciation to Pabst Blue Ribbon for always supporting our shows. And huge shout to all that could make the opening and support what we do. It was an exceptional night even though all of us went home alone. Till next time!

1WV 1FN : LONGBOARD VIDEO CONTEST

INNOCNTS Presents

1WV1FN : A Longboard Video Contest

Introducing a new approach to the singlefin log-riding contest that widens the playing field a bit. No travel costs, no entry fees, no heats, and no limited invites. Open to all men and women riding logs and forwarding the movement in their own way.

Here’s the idea, best wave over a two-month period wins. Simple as that. Winning surfer gets $500 and $100 goes to the videographer who documents the wave. A modest prize, but perhaps enough to help supplement that rising rent a bit.
