Arbor Skateboards :: Jasper Ohlson x The Backlash 37 from Arbor Collective on Vimeo.
Living in San Diego California, Arbor team rider Jasper has been turning heads with his young talent. Although only 13 and continuing to hone in his skills, it is undeniable that he is on track to become one of the best freeriders in the scene.
Watch him show how the Backlash 37 is a perfect board for smaller riders who want to progress fast. From stand up slides to sidewalk slashes to bombing hills this board can do it all.
Enjoy the video, and see how this young gun is coming up!

Rites of Passage / April 4 -April 24, 2014 / Galeri Benoni / Copenhagen
Rites of Passage is an exhibition that explores the transition from youth to oblivion. Truong’s incredibly detailed drawings playfully imagine the feeling of age and the precariousness of time as a surface extension of character. The subjects in her portraits are poised for no specific occasion, neither celebrating nor lamenting their experience of humanity and death. With the experience of getting older, personality and psyche are in a state of flux, making the feelings of growth and decay simultaneous and ambiguous. The rites of passage then become unclear, leaving mortality to be donned and adorned by these characters merely as ornament.
Winnie Truong lives and works in Toronto where she received her BFA from OCAD University. Working exclusively in pencil crayon, Truong’s practice continues to explore the possibilities of large-scale drawing and the expressiveness of hair as subject in her art.
Truong has been featured in numerous art publications, blogs, and magazines. Her work can be seen in the N.Y times, the cover of Hi-Fructose Magazine and in Walk The Line : Art of Drawing. She has been shown at Volta fair N.Y., and Art Toronto. Her work is in the collection of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in KA, and Doris McCarthy Gallery at the University of Toronto.
Rites of Passage is a show that marks the grand opening of the newest gallery in Cph. to explore the versatility of young and upcoming artists, working within a wide range of mediums. We hope to see you the 4/4 from 17-19 where the artist will be present. Drinks will be served. We look forward to welcome you.

you hold no blame for my proud heart – 2014 from FAITH47 on Vimeo.
Lawrence Alkin Gallery are excited to present FLUX, an exhibition of new works by contemporary painter Tom French, opening onThursday 10th April, 6 – 9pm
“In this new body of work French battles with themes of the conscious and unconscious mind, presenting a fresh series of original oil paintings, unique mixed media studies and two new limited editions.
The show continues upon the popular Duality series, extending from his dynamic skull motif, where the figures positioned within his paintings reflect the conscious mind, with the predominant face or skull reflecting the unconscious.”
His paintings deftly combine to offer a unique fusion of figurative realism and lively abstraction with carefree and seemingly unfinished abstract forms. His painterly approach in constructing illusionary compositions are playfully engaging and encourage us to adjust our way of seeing.
The preview evening starts at 6pm on Thursday 10th April. Space is always at a premium so please RSVP with your name, plus any guests you wish to bring along to:
