Artist Network Program
THE RVCA ARTIST NETWORK PROGRAM, COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE ANP, IS AN ONGOING PROGRAM WHICH AIMS TO SHOWCASE THE TALENT OF ACCOMPLISHED AS WELL AS UNKNOWN ARTISTS WHO INSPIRE OUR GENERATION AND PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF CREATIVITY; PROVIDING SOMETHING OF SUBSTANCE AND CULTURE.
TO RVCA, AN ARTIST IS NOT SOMEONE WHO JUST PAINTS A PICTURE, OR WRITES A SONG, BUT SOMEONE WHO IS DEDICATED TO SHARING WITH THE WORLD THEIR LIFE, EMOTIONS AND SOUL THROUGH INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE IDEAS. RVCA AND THE ANP WERE DEVELOPED TO SHAKE THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THE BUSINESS, BY GIVING BACK TO THE ARTISTS AND PROVIDING A VOICE FOR THEIR CREATIVE GROWTH.
This last weekend RVCA Founder PM Tenore curated an art show with ANP Artist Kevin Ancell and Kelly Slater titled "The Pod" a homage to BlackFish and friends who passed on. The show opened at the modern hotel in Honolulu Friday February 13th 2015. Photos by Brandon Jensen.
