Australian born, LA based artist Mark Whalen is awesome! As a huge fan of his work back in Oz, it was a real treat to visit his studio here in LA for SHELTERBLACK, and see were he creates his intricate masterpieces in person.
Check out SHELTERBLACK.com for the feature.
Mark will be exhibiting his latest mini series, “LIKE MINDS” at Black Art Projects in Sydney, Australia.
Mark also has a solo show coming up in November with Black Art Projects at “Future Perfect” in Singapore! So Rad.
Thanks for having us over Mark!! x
Earlier this year Oakley sent us to Australia to shoot Ryan Sheckler’s commercial for their Beyond Reason campaign. While out there, we documented the trip for an online article for the newly re-launched One Icon site and interactive platform. The feature Fear & Loathing in Australia exposes a trip down under, starring Curren Caples, Eric Koston, Rune Glifberg, and Ryan Sheckler. With three RED cameras manned by Kirk Dianda, Eric Brag and Tim (not related to Steve) Irwin, along with photographer and skateboard superstar, Arto Saari, and myself to shoot photos, we captured all the mischief that went down.
See the full feature here.
Here are some of the behind-the-scenes images I shot.
These girls are doing awesome things by taking a stand against bullying in high schools and spreading the love! I was lucky enough to document their tour of high schools in Washington late last year. We shot this photo on our road trip through the beautiful landscapes of Chelan.

Here’s Arto Saari shooting Curren Caples from our recent trip to Australia with Oakley. We were lucky enough to be allowed to skate the St. Kilda Skatepark in Melbourne before it was open to the public!
check out #OAKLEYINOZ for more images from the trip.
Full feature coming soon…
