  • ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BUMBLEBEELOVESYOU

    With a namesake inspired by an inside joke amongst friends about a striped t-shirt from Hot Topic, BumbleBeeLovesYou decided to stop drawing indoors and went outside to start sharing his art with everyone, including YOU, who he apparently loves.

    While everyone is going around town trying to make a name for themselves by slapping bootleg Bart Simpson stickers on street signs, or wheatpasting heavy handed political posters on the side of electrical boxes, BumbleBeeLovesYou specializes in an wholesome style of street art… kids being kids doing kid stuff!

    BumbleBeeLovesYou is like the Bob Ross of street art. His artwork makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, that's why we're bringing him back to Air & Style this year. BumbleBeeLovesYou will be live painting a mural outside our booth, where we'll be giving away free mini wood prints of his work. Hope to see you there! Don't forget, we love YOU too. :P

    Prints on Wood wrapped up Day 2 of Air + Style Los Angeles  2016, Sunday February 21st with a lot of great memories en tow. The day began and ended with fans stopping in to pick up one of our 4 in. x 4 in. mini wood prints from our Air + Style 2016 artists Jeff Soto, Bumblebeelovesyou, Nick Walker and KMNDZ. Over the course of the two-day event, 800 mini prints found new homes, many of which were signed by the artists on site.

    Congregating over the love of art, extreme sports and music, Air + Style 2016 was a hugely enjoyable day for the artists and performers as well as the fans. Travis Barker, Kaskade and Incubus were among the performers of the night, adding a much appreciated soundtrack to the day's vibes. Several hours of painting brought into fruition 4 expertly rendered pieces by the aforementioned POW artists, which will make their way to a benefit show in Los Angeles this week!

    Illustrator and painter Bumblebeelovesyou executed his signature striped style, creating a dreamy rendition of his original titled "Somewhere I'd Rather Bee," showcasing a kid and some very Cali-centric palm trees against an equally Cali sunset. Bumblebee enlisted the help of his friends during the weekend event to help color in portions of the piece seen above using markers, crayons and paint, adding to the community feel of the space and in line with the guy's bubbly personality. What's birthed is a crazy cool multi-medium piece with big kid vibes in the art and execution.

    Painter and muralist Jeff Soto brought quite a few smiles to the Prints on Wood creative space, with plenty of fans stopping in to nab photos and chat with the artist while he executed up his colorful and layered panel. Sans his signature owls, Soto reached for a different animal representation for this piece, one of which may very well be a mythical creature straight from the Soto thought process. Furry, antlered and faceless, the creature is a very cool execution of a mix between the Abominable Snowman and an elk. Of course, Jeff Soto can bring this odd description to life with some expert skill and cool usage of paint brushes and spray cans.

    Johnny KMNDZ Rodriguez kept it elegant and simple, offering up the imagery of a bird mid-flight, narrowly missed by an arrow. As the definite romantic among us, Johnny's work speaks volumes to sentimental vibes and all things that pull at the heart strings. Check out an interview with KMNDZ from this year's DesignerCon 2016 to get a feel for the artist.

    Stencil artist Nick Walker came through with a super unique piece for A+S 2016. Titled "Numbers," Nick adds a visual layer to the piece using numerical stencils to represent his background. The artist's varied range of work can be seen here, as well as his recently released limited run  piece titled "Amour Plated."

  • Recap: Day 1 of Air + Style with Prints on Wood

    Day one of  Air + Style Los Angeles 2016 successfully kicked off today at Expo Park at the Coliseum in Downtown Los Angeles. Per usual, Prints on Wood was happily in the building soaking in the extreme sports and music-centric vibes. 24 athletes competed on the event's 16-story snow jump, while eleven musicians took to the stage including J. Cole, A-Trak, Action Bronson and A$AP Ferg.

    Founded in 1993 by Andrew Hourmount, the event was the first Big Air snowboarding event of its kind. Since '93, Air + Style has held 27 editions of the competition in locations such as Austria, Germany, China and the US, drawing in thousands of fans. This year was no different, as several thousand attendees flowed through the Expo Park fair grounds, enjoying the festivities, catching the Big Air show, peeping musicians, picking up free POW prints and stopping in to watch this year's POW lineup of artists get down.

    Johnny KMNDZ Rodriguez, Jeff Soto, Bumblebeelovesyou and Nick Walker started on the early stages of 4 wood panels that will shape up to become a few fantastic works by the end of Day Two. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see how things pan out. To see shots of the fest grounds and festivities, images of the performers, the monstrous 16-story ramp and our POW artists in action, scroll below!

  • Are you Ready: POW x Air + Style 2016 Going Down Feb. 20th- 21st

    air style

    It's that time again! Extreme sports athlete Shaun White is hosting yet another year of his highly anticipated Air + Style Sports and Music Festival. Beginning February 20th, the two-day event features entertainment from top international athletes including Eric Willet, Antoine Truchon, Markus Kleveland and He Wei. The tour athletes will be dishing out pro tricks on the event's gigantic snow ramp, keeping all of our adrenaline high.

    Of course, you can't forget about the undeniably on point music line up offered at this year's event. From Travis Barker performing on the drums, then hitting us with a DJ set, to Action Bronson and headliner, J. Cole, this is a stand out year for the fest for sure.

    POW attended last year's Air + Style and can vouch the event is quite unlike any other event offered locally in LA. Half extreme sports and half music festival, it brings the best of both worlds to the forefront. And since art is the world's universal language, you know we had our hand in the festivities as well.

    Last year, we brought along Greg Craola Simkins, James Haunt and Jeff Soto to paint live or audiencesThis year, we couldn't be happier to announce that we'll have Jeff Soto returning, as well as Nick Walker, Bumblebee Loves You and Johnny KMNDZ Rodriguez coming along for the ride, and painting live with us at Air + Style!

    Each of the four artist will be undertaking a 4 foot by 8 foot wood panel, creating something awesome for our viewing pleasure. Additionally, we're stoked to announce that we'll have 4 in. by 4 in. mini wood prints to share with Air + Style attendees. Be very sure to stop by and nab one of these mini prints, and catch our artist roster in action. See you this weekend, February 20th and 21st, at Air + Style!
