Art From The Wide World of Skateboarding: Our Recap of adidas Skateboarding's "Showcase X"

Apr 12, 2018Seventh Letter Gallery, Los Angeles

Last Thursday, Juxtapoz trekked down to Seventh Letter Gallery for adidas Skateboarding's Showcase X, which highlighted some of the artistic variety coming out of the world of skateboarding as part of their Das Days event in Los Angeles. As long-time skateboarding enthusiasts ourselves, it would have been hard to pass up an opportunity to rub shoulders with the likes of Marc Johnson, Nora Vasconcellos, Andrew Reynolds, Don Nguyen (whose band Easy played a raucuous set,) Kevin "Spanky" Long, and many more. In addition to that, we got to enjoy Shepard Fairey's DJing talents, drink some beer, and see Shepard's skillfully curated selection of artists, including Zorah Olivia, Sebo Walker, Evan Mendel, Oscar Meza, Stella Reynolds, Shane Auckland, and Andres Alfonso. Check the gallery below for some of the opening night madness.
