WALK AMONG US’
A MASSACRE ART SHOW CURATED BY CROSSFIRE
OPENS ON HALLOWEEN, 31ST OCTOBER
AT HOUSE OF VANS LONDON
7 GUEST ARTISTS & ILLUSTRATORS:
GRAHAM HUMPHREYS, FRENCH, CRAIG ‘QUESTIONS’ SCOTT, Mr GAUKY, STUART KOLAKOVIC, PAUL PARKER AND MATT DIECAST.
As part of this year’s highly anticipated Vans x Crossfire Halloween Massacre, House of Vans London is pleased to present the Massacre Art Show, curated by Crossfire Magazine’s founder Zac Leeks.
Inspired by a 28 year fascination of skateboard graphics and sleeve art from hardcore punk, hip hop, thrash and metal records as well as a fixation with classic horror movies, the ‘Walk Among Us’ exhibition will feature the wonderfully menacing work of seven British artists and illustrators.
“The Crossfire Halloween Massacre has always been my favourite chaotic event to attend, as well as promote,” explains Zac. “So this year I’m proud to bring together an exhibition showcasing some of my favourite British fiends who appreciate drawing, inking and painting the darker side of life.”
The exhibition launching on the Hallowed eve of 31st October features the macabre work of Graham Humphreys, French, Craig ‘Questions’ Scott, Stuart Kolakovic, Mr Gauky, Paul Parker and Matt Diecast and will run for a week. Pieces from the exhibition will be available for purchase, with 20% off all proceeds going to House of Vans’ Charity Partners; Railway Children, Action for Children and Old Vic New Voices.
This gore filled exhibition makes up just one slice of the Vans x Crossfire Halloween Massacre that will rock the new House of Vans London, fittingly situated in the spooky Old Vic Tunnels underneath Waterloo Station. The event themed DEAD ROCK N’ ROLLERS vs ZOMBIE RIPPER FIENDS takes place on the eve of Saturday 1st November and will host exclusive live sets from Norwegian Death Punks Turbonegro and some very special guests (TBA), alongside DJ sets by BBC Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Semtex, Crossfire Sound System and DJ Dogger & DMS. Classic horror films will also play in the cinema all night long.
This raucous party, kicking off at 9pm, will follow the biggest bowl riding skateboard jam the UK has seen this year. Open to both amateur and pro skateboarders from around the world, the comp offers a huge purse of 10,000EUR prize and will be held during the day, running from 2pm-7pm.
