Luke Pelletier Art Show & Book Release


Luke Pelletier is a recent Los Angeles transplant from North Carolina. Living in a tourist town for much of his life, he has been heavily influenced by sharply dressed alligators, assorted loud mouthed birds, and the occasional skeleton bartender. For Luke, tourist culture is less about neon colored t-shirts with snappy sayings and more about jaguars and flamingos wearing sunglasses and eating watermelon.

Join us Friday September 4th as we welcome Luke to town. In return for your hospitality, you will be rewarded with the release of Luke’s amazing book, LIZARD TAIL, as well as an eye melting exhibit of drawings and paintings. We’ll also have a limited edition (1:25) hand pulled silk screen print as well as a few of Luke’s new Surprise Skateboards decks. Or just come down for the Blue Ribbon and Luke’s hair care secrets. For those of you that just can not make the opening – celebrate with our LIZARD TAIL pre-sale which starts NOW

The limited edition print we’ll have…
