RVCA x Astrodeck Collection

Ever the Pioneer, Herbie Fletcher continually sets out to change surfing. In 1976, Herbie started a revolution in performance surfing with his surfboard traction pads, Astrodeck. Through the years, Herbie has worked with the best surfers in the business and created the Wave Warriors video series to promote the Astrodeck brand.

RVCA is proud to present the Astrodeck x RVCA collection, a collaboration that has been in the making for many years through a deep friendship between the Fletchers and RVCA founder PM Tenore.


True Stories | Benjamin JeanJean

In November 2016, ANP artist Benjamin Jeanjean spent a month living and diving into the life stories of Ali, Firas and other war refugees coming from Middle-East to capture and witness their true stories…

With his signature drawings and illustrations, Jeanjean committed to bringing to life those words and moments as told by those who have gone through such unforgettable life-changing experiences.

After a couple of months’ showcase at adhocpad gallery in Vienna (AUT) that kicked-off what has now become a long-term project for the artist, Benjamin will launch a second #TrueStories show at Monika Studio in Bordeaux (FRA) on May 5, 2017 ; the show will be on till early June’17.

Based in Southwest France, Benjamin JeanJean’s art stands for a neo-symbolism based on contemporary aesthetics. As an artist he is normally looking for inspiration in the unknown, a surreal world that lives from people’s dreams, thoughts and fears. But after having met Ali and other refuges during an art project in Vienna in 2016, he wanted to step out of this imaginary sanctuary. To bring reality to life. To illustrate the reality of refugees. To tell their stories. True stories.

"The essence of my art didn’t change though. I want people to look closer. This is when their imagination kicks in and the unconscious takes over. Skulls, for example, are only skulls at first glance. But in fact, they represent any human: blacks, whites, Syrians, Austrians, Americans, good people, bad people, workers, doctors, politicians, you, me. We all have a skull, we all are human beings. There is a story behind each human, and each story is worth being told." -- Benjamin JeanJean.
