Friends and special guests turned out on Friday night at HVW8 gallery in LA to honour the most influential skateboarder of all time, Mark Gonzales, as he celebrates 15 years with adidas.
adidas skateboarding brought together six prominent photographers to tell Mark’s story over the past 15 years through their lenses. These photographers, who have watched Mark and witnessed his skateboarding antics all around the world include Gabe Morford, Joe Brook, Skin Phillips, Brian Gaberman, Benjamin Deberdt, and Sem Rubio.
Guests made their way through the renowned photography and ‘Gonz’ artwork to the outside celebrations where refreshments flowed, Mark’s old video clips were projected and everyone shared their own unique Gonz stories amongst each other and of course with the man of honour himself.
“The show couldn’t have been better. The HVW8 gallery was a perfect venue, all of the six photographers’ work was a true representation of what Mark Gonzales is all about and the opening night was the who’s who of skateboarding’s past and present.
It really meant a lot that Mark was at the event as he never makes public appearances. Seeing him and Natas together was a special moment for me. These are the skateboarders who made history.
Doesn’t seem like fifteen years, it all went by real fast.”
Skin Phillips Exhibiting photographer, Editor at Large of Transworld Skateboarding & adidas Skateboarding Team Manager.
Owing to popular demand, the exhibition will now be open to the public until June 2nd at HVW8 Art + Design Gallery , 661 N. Spaulding Avenue, Los Angeles, CA. www.hvw8.com

ending brand ambassadors, Rad Dan (artist) and Jedd Cooney (photographer) into the Australian outback in a beater 1984 Kingswood pick up (with no fuel gauge, speedo or head lights!), Insight went in search of the ancient 60,000 year old Mungo Man on the outskirts of Lake Mungo……..yet true be told, Rad and Jedd got nowhere close to either – instead finding headless Kangaroo’s, secret biker clubs, bush doofs, outback warrior/legend Scott and a heap of sand.
