The Clayton Brothers on this killer 2 deck Krooked Skateboard set. The projects is part of the Guest Artist Series and the set is limited to 300 sets. But, there is more: 25 of the sets were set aside and received further treatment by the Clayton Brothers. They will be released as a Special Limited Edition set with each being hand stenciled and signed by the artists. They will also come with a letter of authenticity, a custom mount and the hardware to set up your newly acquired pieces of art. Check the images after the jump.

Mark Dean Veca "Phantasmagoria" Time Lapse Videos

Here are two great videos for Mark Dean Veca’s “Phantasmagoria”  exhibition that we covered here not long ago. The first video features the artist discussing the installation itself, while the second video features the man in action and captures the full month effort it took to paint the exhibition summing it up in a matter of minutes. Most definitely worth a watch, so click inside to enjoy these two videos.

William Eggleston: Democratic Camera – Photographs and Video, 1961-2008

The Whitney Museum of American Art is currently showing the first U.S. retrospective show from one of the most influential photographers of all time. William Eggleston is widely recognized as the man that helped shape the form of and acceptance of color photography as an art form with his 1976 solo show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. For this current show, some of his lesser-known works from his rich catalg have been assembled. Both photography and video are represented in this retrospective that spans over 4 decades of his works. This one is without a doubt on my list of exhibitions to catch in the near future. Check inside for more information.

Greg "Craola" Simkins "It Wanders West" Show

As mentioned earlier, it was an action packed weekend for Gallery 1988 as the opening for Greg “Craola” Simkins’ “It Wanders West” show in Los Angeles took place. Craola’s work for this show is truly stunning as you can see from the images after the jump. Word has it that all but one of the paintings were sold during the preview and after looking at them — it is easy to see why. All paintings were also framed beautifully to add to the overall presentation to his work. Really amazing stuff here.

Adam Neate 'The London Show'

Adam Neate’s The London Show will be taking place on November 14th at a rather gargantuan gallery. The gallery in this case: the streets of London. A team of people will be in charge of randomly distributing 1,000 hand screenprinted paintings in the evening prior to the show. People are welcome to take the paintings and make them their own in this unique style showing. The show is now only 4 days away, so hopefully we will be able to present more news regarding this show after it has taken place.

Visvim T.W.O. Boots Folk

Visvim’s T.W.O. Boots Folk is something that might come in handy for those in cold weather climates, or just straight up fans of boots and Visvim in general. The suede upper and high-rise cut makes the boots look rough and rugged for trudging along in inclement climate conditions. Slipping in and out of these boots should be easy considering the side-zip feature. Check the detailed images inside.

Rick Rodney

Photographer Rick Rodney has been a busy man since the last time we wrote about him. His site has been updated with a lot of great material ranging from election day images, portraits with the Gas Lamp Killer and Jason Dill, to a day at the Santa Anita racetrack. In addition to that, you can also see some nice images of Q-Tip doing an instore performance (not sure about the location, but I am assuming Turntable Lab in Los Angeles). Rick is capable of a broad range of styles from photographing inanimate objects, to portraits, and picturesque landscape photography. A great all around variety of images are always available for viewing, which is exactly why I make it a point to check the site every now and then. Have a look inside at some examples of his work.
