The Vans US Open of Surfing just kicked off last weekend in Huntington Beach (PHOTOS), and droves of folks cruised down to check out the surfing, bmx, and skate action in events such as, Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational and the Van Doren Invitational. Like Van's Supply & Demand show at the House of Vans, Russ Pope invited down a team of awesome artists -Rich Jacobs, Nate Russell, Mike Giant, Matt French and Zio Ziegler - do a collaborative mural in the skate bowl, which was modeled after the legendary Marseilles France Skate Park. Also artists Gregg Kaplan, HEF, and Marco Zamora were also in attendance, working on painting large shipping containers inspired by the classic Vans shoeboxes.

The Vans US Open of Surfing runs from July 20th thru July 28th, with event such as the Van Doren Invitational (skate contest) and the Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational on Saturday, July 27th and Sunday, July 28th. Anyhow, here's some photos I took from Day 1 of the artists working on the skate bowl! PHOTOS

Murals at Harry Wirtz Elementary
    Thursday, 23 May 2013 /// Written by Michael Hsiung

Last year, Eric Caruso a teacher at Harry Wirtz Elementary School (Paramount, CA, near LA) had an idea to invite some artists to paint some murals at the school because there wasn't an arts program for the kids. That brilliant idea resulted in some awesome murals by artists Seitaku Aoyama, Yusuke Hanai, Rich Jacobs, Tim Kerr and Albert Reyes.

This year, Eric invented artists Travis Millard and Yusuke Hanai to work on two new murals, one for the library and one facing the field. I hitched a ride down to snap some of these pics from that day.

Eric also took us around to check out the old murals as well as Albert Reye's mural which they've been adding too. He took some student renditions which were inspired by his art and painted them as part of his mural.

Travis gets to work on his mural outline. The little chair helps.

A pic of Yusuke. . .hard working guy who shows no appearance of being exhausted considering he got off a plane from Japan and went straight to working.

Travis's nod to The Uncluded whose new albums feature his awesome artwork.

Rich Jacobs @New Image Art - LA
    Thursday, 02 February 2012 /// Written by Michael C. Hsiung

I headed down to New Image Art gallery Saturday, January 28th to catch Rich Jacobs' Look Into It – If You Know How, which also featured a mini move group show including Sandy Yang, Tobin Yelland, Aya Muto, Jeff Canham, Billy Sprague, Orion Shepherd, Kelly Nicholson, Jordin Isip, Simone Shubuck, Erika Borboa, Clint Woodside, and Tim Kerr.

Rich, known for his colorful, loose and sketch-like character faces, had tons of new works, ranging from new abstract pattern pieces to larger works painted on wood. Another highlight of the show as well was when Harry Wirtz Elementary School assignment winner Terrence Barr and his mother stopped by to show Rich and folks his drawings, some of which were inspired by Rich's paintings. Here are some photos from that evening.

Vans recently sent me down to NY to meet up and check out the September 10th Supply and Demand show - featuring works and a collaborative installation by Chris Yormick, Rich Jacobs, Russ Pope and Jay Howell - at the House of Vans.

I was super excited to check out New York (my first time) as well as see what these creative dudes were up too! This unique show in a 20,000 square foot warehouse also featured food trucks, Juxtapoz magazines, a DJ, a gallery space, and an upstair bowl to skate. My head finally stopped reeling this week. Here's some photos from the trip.
