Tom Gerrard Exhibition | Through My Eyes

RVCA Special Edition Artist Tom Gerrard recently travelled to Tokyo and opened ‘Through My Eyes’ at the RVCA Upstairs Gallery Tokyo. Australian artist Tom Gerrard explores his surroundings through his daily drawings in his passport sizes sketchbooks. In his first ever Japanese exhibition he is presenting 20 works on paper that explore a diverse range of subjects and objects that he has executed in his minimal colour palette of red, black and white with the odd hint of chrome and grey.

These subjects are the commonly overlooked items in Australian life. Each piece has been approached as he would a page in his sketch books. Yet he has swapped out his pens for spray paint, ink, watercolour and acrylic paints. This is a unique exhibition for Tom as the demands of large galleries of his home town of Melbourne have seen his work grow in scale and price. With this exhibition, he has taken a step back from the large canvases and wooden panels and worked exclusively on large sheets of paper.

Thanks to Bintang for the opening night refreshments. View the catalogue of available works here.


Barry McGee | Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara

June 30 marked the opening reception of Barry McGee's new exhibition titled "SB Mid Summer Intensive" at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara. The summer evening was buzzing with hundreds of guests captivated by a comprehensive blend of Barry's paintings, drawings, sculptures, antique surfboards, and an interactive space titled, the "L. Fong Healing Arts Centre" -- a massive accumulation of illustrations, photographs, zines, and ephemera created the artists' friends. It goes without saying, soaking in Barry Mcgee's universe in Santa Barbara makes for an extraordinary summer experience.

The SB Mid Summer Intensive exhibition will be on display until mid October - visit MCA Santa Barbara for more details.

The Draculas | Exhibition at Made By Millworks

The Draculas debut show titled “13” opened June 23rd at Made by Millworks in conjunction with POW! WOW! Long Beach.

This exhibit featured new works by ANP artist Jeff McMillan, Gary Musgrave, and Jake Kazakos in all large format hand screened prints. Every piece was designed to be a screen print and in limited editions of 13.

The show was inspired from all the work the crew had has done over the last 3-4 years under the Draculas name. Some of the art has made it onto walls while others have been used for illustrations and merchandise and some pieces in the show have never seen by anyone, just a bunch of reworked rejected drawings!!

Attendees of the show were supplied their own super secret decoder ring by The Draculas ... that they used to participate in a city-wide scavenger hunt.

also, EXCLUSIVELY available at the opening - pick up discounted drink tickets for Draculas after party at The V Room (Draculas HQ)

“13” runs through July 29th

warning: the following artwork exhibited contains content for mature audiences only. viewer discretion is advised.

May 11, 2018 was the opening reception for Porous Walker's exhibition located at VASF, the RVCA Flagship Gallery in San Francisco, CA.

Stop by and check it out...unless you're easily offended.

Pumps In The Trunks | VASF Photography Exhibition

The opening reception for The Pumps In The Trunk photography exhibition was Friday, March 16th at the RVCA San Francisco flagship store. It was a fun event that brought people together around one of California’s oldest passions. Natalie Aleman, Matthew Bajda, Emmanuel Blackwell, Nick Jasso, and Rully each shared a personal view of their love of cars and the communities surrounding that passion. The raffle at the end of the night was a success in which people could walk away with prints of their own, and one lucky winner won a camera -- our hopes are that prize will inspire them to start shooting photos.

Special thanks to Tim Diet for providing the soundtrack for the evening, Pabst Blue Ribbon for the cold ones, and the crew at RVCA VASF.

Benjamin Jean Jean | True Stories Paris

Launching the third edition of ‘TRUE STORIES’ and first book release from the growing project, RVCA was proud to gather a community of artists, skaters, creatives and amateurs at CLASSIC book store in Paris this past Friday. In presence of artist and project initiator Benjamin Jeanjean, a longtime global ANP artist, the Paris happening allowed for a nice mix of profiles, personalities and authentic art amateurs.

« It’s pretty impressive and encouraging to see people come and learn about the project, » Jeanjean said. « These artworks and book are just the start of something way bigger I believe, as the refugee topic pretty much exists everywhere around the globe. Hopefully, we take this beyond and I hope we can bring in tens of artists to join and deliver their own take on the topic to make it a big-scale group show in the short term. »

The inititaive started in Vienna (AUT), after Jeanjean spent over a month living and learning with various refugees to deeply understand their experiences and tranlsate it all into refined, detailed custom illustrations. That first moment naturally took the artist to add work and artworks to the first chapter and hit Bordeaux (FRA), before producing a first book ‘TRUE STORIES : Vol. I ALI’ that was launched in Paris Friday.

« A book is always a great item to gather both stories and illusrations, to really take the time to transcribe those experiences and have something that stays on your hands, » RVCA Marketing’s Greg Puget said. «We are really proud to support Benjamin’s work and vision, and RVCA really is that unique brand that allows to commit to such beautiful, committed deep art projects. Definitely looking at the next stages on how we help the artist reach a wider audience because his project deserves more. »

A first happening in a long time in Paris, it was a great re-launch for the brand in the French capital, a project that naturally cals in for some soon-to-come new moments for the community.
