Over the weekend in Los Angeles, HUF hosted one of the most impressive art shows we’ve ever seen. Japanese artist Haroshi created six works of art from skateboard decks to be displayed and Deluxe made a limited run of decks, Spitfire wheels, and shirts celebrating the pieces. Friday night was the VIP/media reception, then Saturday was the big public party. There was a high ollie contest over the fire hydrant that was made out of small squares of skate decks. Dylan Rieder and Torey Pudwill tied for first. Afterwards Haroshi had all the pros in attendance sign the hydrant. No word if that made its 30-thousand dollar price tag go up in value. The walls were wheat-pasted with classic fire hydrant skate flicks, many by our own Mike O’Meally and Dave Chami. As if all that wasn’t enough, Ray Barbee, Tommy Guerrero, and Money Mark all played a live set. Check the photos for more in depth looks at the art. More info on the project here.
