In the summer of 1982, Janette Beckman was introduced to members of the East LA gang El Hoyo Maravilla. She proceeded to document this culture much as she had with British punks and the emerging New York hip-hop scene. HVW8 presents her photographs of these seemingly disparate tribes bound by a common rebel spirit.

A great chance to see one of the best documentarian photographers we get to cover in this magazine: On the heels of Peter Beste’s second major book of photography (his debut, True Norwegian Black Metal was published by Vice Books in 2008) HVW8 Gallery, and Sinecure Books, are proud to present a rare gallery show of the photos that arose from Beste’s immersion into the everyday life of the Houston Hip Hop community, Houston Rap.

One of the standout galleries in Los Angeles, HVW8, just opened a new exhibition by creative director, designer, and fine artist Kevin Lyons titled Shits & Giggles. Wait, its more of a "collection of Art Stuff Loosely formulated to Make A Show." That is a good description, or better yet, "works on paper, cloth, and glass exploring the far reaching positive influences of St. Ides Premium Malt Liquor on Hip-Hop culture." There we go.

This past weekend we stopped by HVW8 Gallery for their latest exhibition “New Neons” by Alessandro Moroder and new outdoor murals by Erin Garcia. In New Neons, Moroder explores the idea of masculinity and memory through text, light and space. The attraction of working with neon came from a custom sign his father built in the 80’s and was then hung and lit in their apartment. Photos and more after the jump…

This past weekend we stopped by HVW8 Art for the private reception for “15 Years Of Gonz and Adidas,” a photo exhibition celebrating Mark Gonzales’ 15 years with the adidas Skateboarding family. As you may know, the man they lovingly call the "Gonz" has been a good friend of the Juxtapoz, Thrasher, and High Speed family for years, and we are so happy to see this show come to fruition. Photos and more after the jump…

We have had a chance to see a bunch of Dutch artist Parra in California this year. First, it was his massive mural and first US museum showing at the SFMOMA that was outstanding, and now, he is back on the West Coast. He will open a new series of works, Kind Regrets, at HVW8 Gallery, featuring acrylic on canvas works and pen on paper.
