in mark oblow's own words...
i made the brand moblow, so i could make what ever i want, how i want.
i’ve been involved with surfing and skateboarding since the early 80’s, from being a sponsored rider to working retail to, working for some of the smallest core brands to some of the industries biggest. it all taught me so much, and introducing me to so many great people.
so with moblow i want to keep it personal and i want to keep it me.
the t-shirts i make will only be 150 sold of each print. keeping it very limited to a global market. but making each t-shirt or item a special piece of art.
all the products that are posted will not be remade, so when it sells out, its gone.

I was privy to witness and admire the skills of both Mark Oblow and Taylor Dunfee for their opening, "Love More", curated by Bobby Tang in Long Beach, CA. "Love More" was a single evening event and a month or more has passed since the reception. Shown below are the pieces exhibited outdoors on that beautiful evening. Both artists skillfully hung the show (and with time to spare) and allowed the rest of us the rare chance to see the first public showing of Mark Oblow's creative output, outside of his successful photography career alongside the consistently talented Taylor Dunfee.
Both are unique and have styles that are instantly identifiable as their own. Taylor's ink on paper are classics that wouldn't surprise me if they appeared magically in all of my daughter's children's books. Mark Oblow's mixed, varied and disciplined style is simply stunning, photographing models himself then creating and cutting layers upon layers of stenciling as just a catalyst before he adds paint to paper.
For full sized images and additional information, contact each artist directly and they'll guide you towards the easiest and best way to acquire their work.
I'm proud to own a piece from each artist myself from, "Love More"... #16 from Oblow and the AP of #19 from Dunfee.
SOLD pieces below are from the 4 hour opening reception.
