Thursday, March 19th, 2015

flyer_front_450

myplasticheart presents our annual collaboration with creative documentarians Studio Miners. This year we delve into nostalgic 80’s skate culture with a tribute to the influential skateboard graphic arts scene prevalent at the time.

In our travels as the Studio Miners, we seek out collectors, those who have an itch to surround themselves with the sometimes wacky and weird and often inspiring and nostalgic. The collection we run into most frequently, whether limited to a handful or an entire room, is vintage skateboards. So many of our peers look to the designs of VCJ, Jim Phillips, and Pushead (to name a few) from influential 80s skate companies like Vision, Santa Cruz, and Powell Peralta to draw inspiration for today’s paintings and products. Our latest curatorial effort, Thrashin’, is a tribute to those significant graphics re-imagined by over 15 of our favorite artists, so this April, get ready for some of the raddest, totally gnarly graphics to bring you back in time – Live to thrash, dude!” – Studio Miners

Join us for the opening reception on Saturday April 11th 2015 7-10pm. Exhibition runs through May 9th 2015. Curated by Studio Miners.

About Studio Miners
The Studio Miners are Evoker and Team Sweet. On a trip to Florida in early 2011, the two swapped stories of previous visits to intriguing and inspiring spaces. They both had made it a habit to wander into or find invitations to these magical places. As the conversation went on, they decided it would be for the best to collect their efforts and start a website dedicated to documenting the wonderfully exciting world of artists, collectors and creatives of all kinds.
