Last night Vans hosted a Neil Blender art show at the Thalia Surf Shop nestled in the heart of Laguna Beach to a packed house of excited Blender fans (I myself being one who was instantly turned back into my 10 year old self being in awe of this first meeting of one of my childhood heroes that I completely fanned out on. I think I walked away with some dignity still left.) But it was a great evening with limited edition Blender T-shirts and autographed posters handed out to the lucky crowd. Thanks to Vans and Neil Blender for making this happen.
This side of Thalia Surf shop is actually a “hybrid” Vans store.
Blender and Mountain. Wow.
Grosso made it.
Probably the best artist statement you’ll read.
