A vision by Kelly Slater, Curated by PM Tenore.
Featuring Bruce Reynolds, Kevin Ancell and Todd Glaser.

This is an artistic journey through the chaotic and sometimes inflammatory 2016 election cycle. It is our aim to explore and expose the underlying truth, hypocrisy, danger, motivations, misinformation and effects of this process. It is our hope that the artwork produces thoughtful discussion, transparency and an openness to question the powers that be...

Recap | RVCA Presents 'Advance'

RVCA presented its European ANP show, ADVANCE, on September 7, 2016, at Darwin - Bordeaux, featuring the works of Ed Templeton, Andrea Do Souto, Ben Horton, Benjamin Jeanjean, Jerome Romain and Kevin "Spanky" Long.

In the presence of all artists except Long, over 350 people attended the launch event and we are already very honored to count thousands of visitors since the kick-off, thanks to the Ocean Climax festival that brought over 25,000 visitors to the Darwin location between Sep. 8 and 11.

With a mix of photography, paintings and illustrations from our advocates and ANP Artists, this first edition of what is already planned to become an annual Art show, enabled artists and amateurs to come together at one of France’s most fashionable locations and enjoy an authentic gathering of the community.

We would like to thank the artists for their work and presence, RVCA’s teams and partners, our hosts at l’atelier Les Mains Sales x Les Sauvages and you, fans, art-lovers, opinion-leaders, skate-culture aficionados…

The show runs till Sep. 28, 2016.

Mark Alsweiler | Port of Call

RVCA ANP Artist Mark Alsweiler has recently teamed up with iconic sustainable furniture and design store Koskela to present a special off site exhibition, 'Port Of Call' and window installation featuring a selection of new hardwood sculptures and paintings.

Sage Vaughn | Slow Culture LA

'Just Tell Me You're A Dream Chaser', a new exhibition from ANP Artist Sage Vaughn and Jeremy Shockley opened up at Slow Culture LA last Friday night. RVCA Staff Photographer Delon Isaacs was there to snap a few photos of the evening. The exhibition will run through May 7th.

Sage Vaughn | Reflections to A Muse

ANP Artist Sage Vaughn recently opened the 'Alexis Ross Museum' to house his latest exhibition, Reflections To A Muse. "This exhibition's title, 'Reflections To A Muse' illustrates this relationship perfectly. Just as Kiki de Montparnasse was inspiration to the photographs of Man Ray or George Dyer the twisted subject of Francis Bacon's most memorable works, Alexis ross plays mirror to Sage Vaughn. While the exhibition is without a doubt a tribute to a strong personality that has had an enormous effect on the artist's growth as a creative being, it cannot be denied, that through this reflection, Vaughn is in fact painting his way back to himself." --- ANP Artist Aaron Rose.
