Brand spanking new Os Gemeos

On Margaret Kilgallen's trip to Brazil ---she traveled all over the country. Her art changed after and was strongly influenced by the street and mural art of Brazil.
Below is an amazing collection of her works at a friend's home in the Hills of LA.
So much of current art is connected deeply thru friendships and inspirations.

The Hollywood Hills.....

I don't know why the palm tree looks like it is falling down? Maybe the camera moved!

Reccomended Up Coming Events LA and Mexico City

We will be adding to this post with event details and further info asap!
Dates: August 31st- September 2nd


Here are a few links to films


The L.A. Skate Film Festival is an international film festival dedicated to putting the limelight on skateboard filmmakers. Skateboard videos are an integral part of the skateboard industry, culture and history. Skateboard films have shaped the culture of skateboarding more so than any other medium over the years. Each video delivers new techniques, styles, fashions, music and information to the skateboard community that changes the way things will be forever.
The L.A. Skate Film Festival is open to all filmmakers: independent filmmakers, skate shops, media, emerging filmmakers or brands.

All submitted films are reviewed by the Academy of Skateboard Filmmakers, who collectively decides which films will be nominated in each category. Our panel of judges then decides on the winners in each one of the categories (US film, documentary, commercial, independent, international, skate shop, and emerging). Nominated movies will be publicly screened in Los Angeles, California on August 31st and September 1st, 2010. An awards ceremony to announce the winners will be held in Hollywood, California on September 2nd, 2010.

Films will be competing for the following awards:

Best U.S. Skate Film
Best International Film
Best Independent Film
Best Documentary
Best Skate Shop Video
Best Emerging Filmmaker
Best Skate Commercial
Best Classic*
Additional Awards:

Best Photography
Best Editing
Best Soundtrack
Best Intro
Best Skit
*The Classic category will not be open to the public. The Festival will hand select 10 classic skate films that will be then handed over to the judges for nomination.
