    groundUP website now LIVE! 


    After a long wait, the official groundUP Pirates web page has just landed on the collective consciousness of the unsuspecting art public.  Yeah, I just used all those words in succession.  Nice, huh?

    Anyway, the Pirates make the big step into officialness, as if they weren’t official enough.  To celebrate, they’ll be holding a…

    The fifty/fifty collective out of Hilo will be holding a special collective show this First Friday at Ong King. The show, which blends the worlds of skating, surfing, and art, will feature artists from alla round Hawaii, including groundUP’s own Rzone, among others.

    Props to all the sponsors on the flier, as they know the true creative expression found in the three worlds.

    groundUP Pirates present “Invisible Giants” 

    groundUP Pirates present

    Just when you thought that was it for the year…

    …the groundUP Pirates crew comes back for another dope art show.

    The usual suspects are back for one last go-round for 2007. The amazing collection of audio, visual, and fashion is back, as well as the live mural. But, that’s where the similarities end. The Invisible Giants will feature the first team mural battle. Three teams full of Hawaii’ best will be battling it out for supremacy and bragging rights as the best team.

    To list down the entire teams would just not be doing justice to how dope this battle will be. Just check the flyer for the teams and be prepared for an amazing mural to come out from all three teams.

    Also, the amazing amount of people performing and doing displays would also be too much for words. Just know that this is the art event to hit up. I honestly don’t you could get much better than this lineup.

    Invisible Giants goes down this Saturday night at the Chinatown Courtyard at 1116 Smith Street. Doors open at 7PM and rocks until midnight. $7 gets you in the door, $5 if you got a groundUP shirt, a collar or a skirt on.

    For more info, check out the groundUP myspace.

    Pool Rules, the Hawaii stop 


    Pool Rules is the Hawaii Stop of Hurley’s “Against The Grain”artist series. The show will feature art from over 20 skateboarding legends, including Oahu residents Shogo Kubo and Jef Hartsel. Kubo, as many of you know, is one of the original Z-Boys. Hartsel is an accomplished skaeboarder and graphic designer, working for such companies as Vans, Alva Skates, Hawaiian Island Creations and Jimmy’z. He currently serves as the creative director for Poetree.

    The event is this Thursday night at Next Door (43 Hotel St.) and is free to the public. The doors open at 8pm.

    The dope part about this event is that it’s a fundraiser for the Grind For Life organization. I’ll be honest: I’ve never heard of Grind For Life until now. After clicking their website and checking out what they’re all about, I kinda wish I knew them before this. It’s skateboarding vs. cancer. And you guys already know my stance on the whole cancer issue. It’s a dope charity and it’s serving the greater purpose, which is helping other find a cure. I dig it and hope you will throw your support their way. I’m officially adding their name to the atypicalLIVING Charities We Support list.
