By: Yong-Ki Chang

Congratulations to Mark Oblow for his 100th submission into his weekly column on What Youth called, "Back Den." 

They made a video of all 100 photographs and I slowed it down to a 57 second clip with Oblow's personal request of a Dennis Kamakahi song entitled, "Ulili E."

Also check out my personal favorite song from this legendary Hawaiian musician and songwriter with, "Wahine 'Ilikea."

Mark Oblow, "Hawaii, Stuck To Me" at Fitted Hawaii - Opening Reception and Capsule Collection - June 24, 2016

By: Yong-Ki Chang

I'm truly proud of Mark Oblow and all that he's done to push every aspects of his art, photography and most importantly, all of us skateboarders and surfers. 

His solo opening show on his home island of Oahu, Hawaii opens at FITTED's Hale Nuihi warehouse/gallery space (next door to BJ Penn's UFC Gym) from 6-10PM on Friday, June 24, 2016.  

"Hawaii, Stuck To Me" consists of Oblow's 2016 resin works in mixed media, most notably, a continuation of his 40+ year old deadstock skateboards. He's incorporated his photography, hand-cut block prints/stencils, doodles, laser-cutter, and paint, all under resin, which harkens back to his youth as a sponsored surfer.  All stunning, beautiful and desirable.

This show will consist of 95 original resin pieces featured on two of the main walls at the space along with a huge block print installation.  Instead of a numbered print edition for the opening, Oblow created individually hand-made original and unique block prints on Japanese book pages.

We'll also debut a special event shirt made by RVCA for Oblow, two moblow enamel pins made by RollingDeathMaui, custom push pins for the original block print installation made by The Speed Merchant, and What Youth magazines featuring Mark Oblow covers.

Mark Oblow's Brass Knuckles

By: Yong-Ki Chang

Mark Oblow has been steadily creating new works for his upcoming solo show on Oahu, Hawaii this Summer. Building on deadstock, 40+ year old skateboards, he's chosen to have existing 7-ply decks laser cut into brass knuckle shapes, which he then imbeds into these classic boards. Finished with multiple layers of resin, they're starting to get interest from buyers with a few spoken for already.
