Vert-Bert at St. Helena [o] by Isaac McKay-Randozzi.
Mark Kushimi has an opening at the Human Imagination in Honolulu, Hawaii featuring photographs of Jef Hartsel (that's Hartsel riding his EZ Ryder Koa complete below) amongst other notables. Mark was part of the Solitary Arts, "A Product Of Design" show in Culver City last September. If you're in Hawaii, please check out his opening and say, "Hello" to Mark for us in person! You can also see what Mark does on his day-to-day as the Editor-in-Chief over at Contrast Magazine.
Mark Kushimi sent a stack of the latest Contrast Magazine, issue 07 and within its pages, a full-page Solitary Arts ad, along with a double spread of Jef Hartsel (holding his EZ-Ryder Koa Complete) and an editorial-photo of Connor McGivern, who's rocking the SA Moon sticker on his top-deck. Mahalo to Kushimi!
Thanks to Christopher and Kathleen Sleboda, curators under the name, Gluekit for their time, effort and care, towards everyone involved with A Product Of Design show. Below is a catalog of sorts, of each of the Solitary Arts family's pieces in the show. Good sales on opening night but tomorrow is the very last day so check it out if you're in the area.
