The Eurasia Project documents the travels of Patrik Wallner and his like-minded companions under the name Visualtraveling, exploring all the 101 nations across the European and Asian continents throughout the last decade. It all started with a 10,000 kilometer journey from Moscow to Hong Kong completed all via land routes which later morphed into numerous skateumenataries like Around the Black Sea (2010), The Mandalay Express (2011), Meet The Stans (2012), The Persian Version (2013) and The Edge of Arabia (2015) that took skaters like Kenny Reed, Michael Mackrodt, Denny Pham, Phil Zwijsen, Laurence Keefe, Daniel Zvereff, Gosha Konyshev and Walker Ryan to countries and across borders that many people are entirely unfamiliar with.
Wallner's exhibition and book release tour started in Shibuya, Tokyo at the end of May at the adidas flagship store than traveled to the Soho Arts Gallery in New York City with a third stop at the Super Wonder Gallery in Toronto and finally making it's way to Los Angeles at the famed Seventh Letter Gallery.
It was a perfect Friday evening with Patrik's homies including Ako Jefferson, Sebo Walker, Walker Ryan, Pete Eldridge, Felipe Gustavo, Peter Bici, Mike O'Meally, Paul Shier and DJs Blair Alley and LaLa Lace.
