SB surfboards (Steve Boysen) played host to the “Expression ” Art Show held at its Showroom in Oceanside, California on March 1st. On display were the works of Brian Clinebell from San Diego and Orange County’s El Sugar Skull.
Clinebell’s work focuses on pop culture and it’s effects on society. His experiencesand run-ins on everyday life can be seen in a mixed media of mediums in hispaintings. His influences are Basquiat, Warhol, Rauschenburg and Californiaculture.
El Sugar Skull’s work by Randy Noborikawa is inspired by México’s “day of the dead”. His ability to bend neon lighting into crosses and hearts and blend them into his art only adds to Randy’s already amazing work.
This was the first art show held at the SB showroom, also known as “Blue Room”. If you drive by at night you cant miss the shaping room with its lighted blue walls that sits in the back of the store.
The night kicked off with sounds from the Clean Cuts who dug deep into their eclectic vinyl collection of 60 garage punk and 70s thrash lps.
After a few drinks, some art being sold and a couple of interviews, guest were treated to a 30-minute set by Oceanside’s own Nato Wolfgang. Nato, who is in the San Diego band “The Drowning Men,” played his solo set which he describes as being influenced by Tom Waits and Nick Cave.
Special thanks to Cirrus media for their video efforts, Bandwagon clothing for sponsoring the event and everyone who attended. The art will be on display till the end of March. Come by and check it out! Stay tuned for more events coming next month.
