Did this custom urbanization of a surfboard for Twonky today at the X Games 2012. I'll be doing three more days of radical tubularization. (Thanks for the hookers Tanner!)

I painted this panel (broke my own slow speed record too!) this past Friday night at a benefit for Autism Speaks. They are an organization dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Word!

Intro(spect) on Something Must Break
by Jino De Castro


Life has a rhythm. An ebb and flow. Inhalation and exhalation. Birth. Death. On Friday, June 1, 2012, EYEONE debuted Something Must Break (pictured above), an installation composed of branch fragments, spray paint, staples, and a rusted spray can housing a once living plant. 

A contextual understanding of EYEONE's artistic canon deepens the viewer's appreciation for Something Must Break. "His work is rooted in graffiti, printmaking, photography, and punk rock. Often focusing on isolated objects and individuals, his art reflects on themes of alienation, survival, melancholy, resistance, and the myriad experiences encountered while navigating the chaos of contemporary urban environments."

EYEONE is more known for his graff work. Stroll down Sunset or Beverly Boulevard, or visit Orange 20 off of Melrose, and sure enough you've been exposed to his signature Zapatista character. His current submission to our gallery offers another perspective on his skill, playfulness, and experience as an artist.

Something Must Break transforms medium into subject, explores the intricacies of decay and deterioration, and is just out right different from what EYEONE is typically known for. Ultimately, he is challenging the audience to accept that all things live and that all things die. That even death possesses grace, integrity and beauty; and that it is something to not be feared, but appreciated.

But hey, that's just me. I invite you to come and formulate your own interpretation...

The homie Tanner aka Racecar 13 has a rad solo show that's closing tonight. He is a painter extraordinaire, creator of some of Powell Peralta's most iconic skateboard graphics, and one of the only people I've ever heard of whose artwork (on helmets) has actually saved lives. This exhibition is a must-see, and tonight is the closing party. Info below:

Here are some glimpses from the moral ascendancy that was the Revelation Records 25 Year Anniversary celebration. It's been a while since I had a footprint-shaped scar embedded in my arm, and for that fact, I am glad I witnessed the strength of street knowledge as delivered by Shai Hulud, In My Eyes, No For An Answer, Quicksand, Statue, Underdog, and Gorilla Biscuits. Went!



I designed these two panels/colorways for PDP Afterglow for this year's E3.

pointed me to this vid of the Tour de California rollin' in front of some lettering by Skypager (part of a collab mural with him, Cache, an unspecified cat-painting dude, and me.) (Thanks Swanky!)
