In L.A.: Chad Muska @ New Image Art

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 06, 2013
This past weekend we stopped by New Image Art for the opening of Chad Muska’s first solo show. “Chad Muska comes from a long tradition of professional skateboard artists (Mark Gonzales, Ed Templeton, Chris Johanson, Natas Kaupas, and Neil Blender, among others) who have devoted their lives, both on and off the board, to a journey of creativity and discovery. The title of Chad’s first show, “Transitions,” is a word that not only stems from the curved surfaces skateboarders ride on in pools, parks, and ramps, but it’s also a reference to the skateboard lifestyle which is defined by movement from place to place, and from one state of mind to the next.  Photos and more after the jump…
