Subliminal Projects is pleased to host Legends of Skateboard Art, a one-day pop-up exhibition benefiting Skateboard Hall of Fame inductee Allen Losi. Known as one of the few skateboarders who rode out the near death of skateboarding in the early 1980s, Losi pushed the technical limits and helped reinvent skateboarding for a new generation. Since 2012, Losi has been battling CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), a progressive disease of the Autonomic Nervous System that has him fighting to manage intense chronic pain.
The exhibition will launch an auction of tribute pieces by 20 iconic artists of skateboard art and culture, inspired by Losi and executed on models of Losi’s early ‘80s skateboard shape, each handcrafted by legendary board maker Paul Schmitt. All auction proceeds will go to helping Losi get the treatment he so desperately needs.
The exhibition will be open to the public at Subliminal Projects on Sunday, August 15th from 12-6PM. No appointment necessary. All visitors must be respectful of social distancing guidelines and wear a mask.
A true pioneer, Losi lead the way for so many. Let’s help return the favor
