Matty's Patty's | RVCAloha 2018

This year at RVCALOHA marked the first ever "Matty's Patty's" event at Banzai Skatepark on the North Shore of Oahu. Chef Matty Matheson hosted this inaugural event with RVCA founder, PM Tenore. Despite the rain, Chef Matty dialed in 300 burger patties to create 150 double cheeseburgers complete with local Oahu wild boar bacon, American cheese, and what Matty considers one of the greatest condiments ever, (Mustard, Ketchup, Onions, Mayonnaise, and Pickles). It was easily one of the greatest burgers of all time.

What dish should chef Matty Matheson cook next with RVCA?

Azorean Loop | RVCA Europe

A ten day trip exploring three of the Azorean Islands (San Miguel, Pico, and Terceira). A loop through the local culture and landscape in search of untouched skate spots and visits to local craftsman in order to learn from their environment and their centenarian way of working. Can we add a contemporary vision to their traditional process? Living in the age of over-information, the work of many skaters and videographers pass us by with a quick scroll of the thumb. However, a small percentage of these creatives are joining forces and ideas to distance themselves from this, attempting to create something more physical. Why travel with only a “skate trip" mentality?

Remote destinations are a chance to learn something new, a great opportunity for us skateboarders and new cultures to cross paths.

A selection of photographs by Jack Whitefield.

“The last few years I pretty much been photographing landscapes. No with a narrative or anything but just straight documentation of what I see in front of me.

I´m pretty interested on how landscapes degrades and nature regains control.”

A photographic story about the local craftsman visits and

some inspirational images by Octavio Barrera.

“Back in 2014, I took a forty-day trip through the Canarian archipelago, visiting and discovering various artisans and their way of working. I became curious as a designer in how these people work with almost no access to external references, yet their craft still continues to evolve. These artists all have something in common. Love for what they do and are tired of not being valued.”

“By observing them at work in their accustomed surroundings you discover that so many are spinning a constant loop. Without inspiration from different perspectives. Is this the last call to a new generation?.”

Everything's Unreal | Paul McNeil

It's been two rewarding, but relentless years with solo exhibitions in Sydney, Tokyo, San Francisco, Auckland, Hobart, Christchurch, Bali, Byron Bay and Portugal. Now we're proud to present the latest series of works by prolific artist Paul McNeil.

Everything's Unreal is a collection of new pop works reflecting McNeil's dry humour and incredible wit. Simplicity is the backbone to this ongoing series. Personal truths, localism, music, politics, humanity and surfing show up in these vibrant paintings and sculptures.


---


Born in NZ, now based in Byron Bay. McNeil's career spans over 40 years. An original Mambo artist, Paul has published several kids books, co-founded The Art Park and designed endless graphics on Surfboards, skateboards, clothing, album covers, merchandise for musicians and tour posters including The Clean, Pavement and The Rolling Stones.

This exhibition is proudly supported by RVCA and the Artist Network Program.

The artist would like to thank The Music Farm Studios in Byron for their ongoing patronage.
