BIGFOOT Launches New Exhibit at Hurley's )( SpaceHurley welcomes artist BIGFOOT to its )( Space gallery for his latest exhibit: "Ominous Compositions from the Magic Mountains." On the opening night, September 11th, BIGFOOT will team up with Hurley's resident artist, Jason Maloney, to create a must-see art installation.
Bay Area-based, nature-loving artist BIGFOOT has been a major influence in the skateboard industry for more than a decade. Despite his reclusive nature, Bigfoot has a very active presence in both the sports and art world, designing skateboard graphics and footwear. He has exhibited in galleries in the US and Japan, and in 2004 unveiled his first vinyl figure through Strangeco. His eponymous character and love of heavy metal - especially the masked rock group KISS - play a major role in his studio work, as well as his highly recognized street art.
)( Space art gallery is located at Hurley's headquarters:
1945 Placentia Avenue,
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
The gallery is open Monday Friday, 10am 5pm www.hurley.com/hspace
Music and food will be offered at this FREE exhibit. On the music end, DJ JOSHR will open for KISS tribute band Dressed to Kill. Food will be provided by the infamous Kogi Taco Truck and the heavy-metal-themed food truck Grill 'Em All, currently in the final four of The Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network. The skate park will also be open during the exhibit, providing plenty of incentive for a crowd to come down to the )( Space Gallery.
