When attending the international MAGIC convention in Las Vegas, NV, we ran across this skateboard exhibit in the S.L.A.T.E. area. SLATE highlights the newest & latest underground street labels, fashion and lifestyles from inspiring individuals setting trends for anything related to skate/art/surf and music. The original works of art on recycled skateboards is a traveling exhibit by over 90 artists, a project of SK8OLOGY, combining counter culture with fine art. This is a small example of all the boards on display. MAGIC/S.L.A.T.E. is an insider view of trends to come and a sensory overload of creative forces combined. It’s a lot to take in, everything from product display, live art exhibits, skateboard contest, etc. The creative energy of designers and artists is beyond inspiring.

From Tattoo Art to Neo Impressionism

Charlie Spencer, Studio 21 Tattoo artist and owner, spends his spare time creating black and white pointillism artwork. Pointillism, a popular 19th century French painting technique uses small dots of pure color placed next to each other and when viewed from a distance tones appear to blend together. This style goes back to the neo impressionist art movement, Georges Seurat, being one of the most popular painters of this era. Charlie has chosen this style of tediously applying dots over and over with Micron pens to achieve the darks and lights of tonal value desired, creating great detail. In black and white pointillism the two dots placed next to each other create “optical mixing”  creating a perceived single tone. His artwork has been displayed at various themed art venues and events including Cornerstone Gallery and Studio 21 Tattoo Gallery.
