Hypebeast just hyped our collaboration with the Long Beach Musem of Art for Vitality and Verve III: Transforming the Urban Landscape and we couldn’t be more excited.
Jump over to their website to view a collection of the installations – Long Beach Museum Transformed into a Street Art Playground.
We are excited to be able to present a collection of 10 new hand-painted skate decks from Martin Whatson out of Norway.
Please note each deck is numbered on the back, but each is a 100% unique, all hand-painted edition. Whatson has been creating these on and off, for a few years now, and he numbers the back of each to simply to keep track. They are not a part of any specific numbered edition. This is the first time a collection of these has been made available for online purchase.
All decks will ship from our gallery next week.

Our current exhibiting artist Wiley Wallace is currently featured on Juxtapoz.com. The New Contemporary Art publication highlights Wallace’s style and themes in the piece which features work from the showing exhibition, “Stay Connected.”
Playful and ambiguous, his luminous and ostensibly radioactive worlds suggest a metaphysical interest in the possibility of alternate realities: the endlessly shapeshifting and protean nature of fantasy at the intersection of the imagined and “real.” Wallace’s paintings combine realistic rendering with elements of the surreal, and near-magical references that include eerily cast light sources bordering on the supernatural. – Juxtapoz

Thinspace Projects co-owner, curator, and digital mastermind behind the Thinkspace social feeds Andrew Hosner is the first gallerist to be interviewed for Juxtapoz’s new series, The Digital Wheel. We love seeing our artists’ grace the pages of Juxtapoz, digital or print, but it’s not very often our curator is featured sharing insight into the inner working of Thinkspace Projects.
Anyone paying attention to the New-Contemporary scene for the past 10-15 years is likely well aware. His prolific work ethic runs one of the most professional and well-known spaces in the game. Mural festivals, art fairs, museum shows, private collections, on and on, have harnessed him an uncanny ability to provide opportunities for his artists on a multitude of platforms. If anyone has a handle on the evolving digital landscapes facing New-Contemporary galleries, it’s Andrew Hosner. ––Gabe Shaffer
