Last Saturday, had a real treat at Us Versus Them‘s Second Annual Oil & Water Art Show. The line-up of artists, hot rods, & choppers made it an exceptionally well night. The first show was at Known Gallery in L.A. and this year was held right next door to UVT’s San Diego flagship store. Here are some photos:
Southern California Locals, Us Versus Them presents yet another amazing artist line-up in their upcoming 2nd annual Oil & WaterArt Show at the UVT San Diego Chapter in Downtown SD. This Saturday, March 9th from 6pm-10pm. Over 60 well-respected names will be featured in the show.
A group show of new works and art curated by James Banuelos & Mike Glory
Traditionally oil and water do not mix. The surf, hot rod and motorcycle cultures that grew out of
Southern California from the 50’s-70s however, were all connected by the idea of personal freedom and
expression-not conforming to the standards of the societies they existed in. For this show we are bringing
together dozens of artists and craftsmen from these respective backgrounds and beyond-from legends to
rookies. Each artists will be provided with a particular canvas: a blank board from City Fog Surfboards,
helmets from Biltwell, gas tanks from Lowbrow Customs among other items. In addition to UVT Fall product and accessories, exclusive artist prints and tees based around some of the pieces included in the show will be for sale.

It was a nice sunny day after a rainy one at the Wild West Arena in Winchester, CA. The beauty behind the lifestyle of doing it yourself & building your own is the story behind all these choppers, bobbers, & hot rods. This can relate to the skateboarding world in so many ways, that’s why most of these people are skateboarders or have a history in skateboarding! Despite of all the different cliques, garage shops, & motorcycle clubs, they were all gathered here for the love of what they live… to ride! It’s a close knit community. In the end, they were all “here for the beer!” Continue reading 4th Annual Hippy Killer Hoedown 2012 Photos!→
