Opens Saturday evening 21 Oct 2006
The dpmhi Gallery in London is proud to announce the launch of a new exhibition of works by Artist, Poet and Professional Skateboarder, Mark Gonzales.
Mark is a true legend of skateboarding, often described as the godfather of modern skateboarding. An iconic renaissance man who over the years has amassed a reputation as an all round multi media artist and has exhibited internationally.
Mark will be here in the UK to exhibit never before seen works including the latest evolution of his Priest character, the Megga America Communion Priest. In an edition of 1000 these will be exhibited, each piece totally unique, hand finished and customised by Mark himself.
The previous incarnation of this character, made in collaboration with Mo Wax Arts is now a highly collectable piece of Marks work. The full details cannot be revealed yet but we can tell you that Mark has definitely made a big forward step conceptually with this piece. More information and pictures of this unique artwork will be revealed very shortly.
Plans are also underway to publish a book featuring photographs of each individual figure, so as to fully document Mark’s creative process.
Alongside these artworks dpmhi will have very limited run of collaborative clothing, including their signature Snopants, Hoodies and Ts as well as a limited run of sticker art.
