LA_WOMAN_AMBER_B

For its closing weekend, May 8-10, Oakley In Residence: Los Angeles celebrates LA WOMAN – a homage to the art of female skateboarding, featuring the stars and scenery of the city where it all began. Curated by photographer Amber B DiAnda, the exhibition is a modern day love letter to the city of angels. Featuring six photographers and one filmmaker, including the likes of Deanna Templeton, Magdalena Wosinska, Molly Steele, Imogen Barron, Andrea DoSouto and Lisa Whitaker. LA WOMAN highlights the exploration of landscapes, liberty, and ladies of the skate scene, reminding us of the co-existence associated with creative expression and our cultural surroundings.

Thank you to all the incredible woman that helped make this exhibition so awesome. I am eternally grateful for all your love and support. xa

TWO THOUSAND AND FUCKING THIRTEEN

Well, 2013 really kicked me in the butt, and showered me with hugs and kisses!

I had the opportunity to travel the world, work with some incredible people, and was completely inspired by new and old friends along the way. And to top it off, we were adopted by two very beautiful cats; Blackie “Sabbath” Boo and Yeti.

I am eternally grateful for the love and support from our family and friends, and are wishing you all the love in the world for 2014. I look forward to creating magic with you in the year ahead.

Here are a few highlights from throughout the past year…

KOZY N DAN STUDIO VISIT

We visited the amazing creative duo, Kozyndan for SHELTERBLACK recently. As a huge fan of their work, this visit was one of the most exciting visits we have ever done! Also, I didn’t think it was possible but, Kozy is seriously cuter in real life!!

The pair have been collaborating on artwork since they met in art class and haven’t stopped since. During our visit we got to peek at paintings and sculptures they have been working on for an upcoming exhibition.

You can see their work at GR2 until September 25th. Go check it out if you live  in Los Angeles.
