Dose: Plywood snowboards serve as artists’ canvases at Neon Daze & Winter Waves exhibit

From Network A via YouTube:

Art and snowboarding have been fused together from the beginning. But Mike Parillo and Corey Smith took it one step further for their Neon Daze & Winter Waves art exhibit. Parillo and Smith are both artists and snowboarders and wanted to curate a show “to explore the roots of snowboarding, as imagined by some of the most legendary and creative riders and artists of our time.” Dose host Cait Barker was on hand at the opening at CES Contemporary Art Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles. She spoke with Parillo and Asymbol Gallery’s Alex Hillinger to discuss the inspiration behind the show (Spring Break Snowboards), Asymbol‘s involvement, and to find out more about the snowboarders and surfers involved—including Ian Walsh, Travis Rice, Gerry Lopez, Pat Moore, and Christian Fletcher.
