Eight countries, 5,000 eyes, hundreds of paint brushes, thousands of hours of painting, 6,500 glasses of Sangria and beer, 3,000 tapas and almost 7,000 miles later, the éS Adrian Blanca Traveling Art Exhibition has come to an end.
For the last three months, Adrian Blanca has been on a whirlwind art tour to celebrate his collaboration with éS. At each tour stop, spectators were able to watch Adrian create his visual madness live with permanent installations fashioned in all eight locations: One Off in Stockholm, Arrival departure in Amsterdam, Slam City Skates in London, Street Machine in Paris, Fish and Chips in Antwerp, Doubleight in Munich and the éS showroom in Barcelona. The tour finally concludes on US soil at the éS Showroom in New York City.
Adrian first picked up a skateboard in the mid-’90s, and this love for skateboard culture can be seen in his incredibly intricate drawings that he has created over the years for a number of influential magazines and prominent galleries in Europe. A true fan of éS for years—in particular the Accel, which he has used on numerous occasions as a canvas for his art—it came as no surprise that Adrian chose to launch his collection with the Acell TTL and TT Deluxe
The éS x Adrian Blanca exhibition is open daily from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and runs thru Friday, November 21, 2008 at the éS Showroom on 29 Greene St. in NYC.
