MONOFILAMENTAL: Skate Art Show – DEW TOUR OC
Menace to the Ocean Bowl featured on www.allisports.com
I’m a little late on this post, but here it is….DEW TOUR in OCEAN CITY, MD!…For starters it was an absolute blast. This year I was invited to participate in the official art show of Dew Tour, organized by legendary skateboarder and super talented artist, Matt Dove. The art show titled MONOFILAMENTAL was held in Berlin, MD in an old chicken plant, a pop-up Punk Rock Fish Studio of sorts. As if I wasn’t already on cloud 9 having my work on the wall next to Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Kris Markovich and some of my oldest and dearest friends, my papier-mâché/found object fish head sculpture, MENACE TO THE OCEAN BOWL, made it onto the the Dew Tour/Alli Sports web coverage of the event. Click here to see the post featuring my sculpture and also Marc Emond’s mixed media piece A Relic of the True Ocean Bowl and painted helmet (3 of 5).

“MONOFILAMENT: plastic type line used for fishing. MONOFILAMENTAL: a collaboration of a fishing theme, plus the collective line that ties all of us together mentally, creativity, skateboarding, eastern shore of Maryland recreations.” – Matt Dove
Thanks Matt Dove and all who assisted in making the night an amazing one! photo by Andrew Azbell
Thanks to Bobby Brown, Andrew M. Azbell, Stephanie Karn, and Chip Ayers for the image contributions for this post, as 99% of my Dew Tour documentation consists mainly of night time party shenanigans and look more like this…
