gonzweb1THING OF THE DAY.today?

Last Friday evening.15 Years of Gonz opened at WAYWARD GALLERY, Mowlem Street, London E2.  The rather alternative gallery run by a small black and white dog, halfway down Vyner Street, played host to a photographic celebration of the man they call GONZ. The crowds came out, the sun came out, beer was drunks, art was enjoyed.. The show is open until July 18th.

Mark Gonzales is considered to be the father of modern, street skating. Mark, commonly known amongst his peers and fans as ‘Gonz’ or ‘The Gonz’, has been named the most influential skateboarder of all-time by Transworld Skateboarding magazine. His imaginative and spontaneous style was one of the main founding forces of street skateboarding and today still turns the inconceivable into reality. Not only is Gonz an incredibly talented skateboarder, but his everyday life could be considered an art form in its own right. His works of art, poetry and videography express his unique imagination and color his day-to-day life.”
