Volcom is proud to have been a partner in two workshops (screen printing and customization) for the kids as part of its support of the exhibition BX-LAX FARAWAY SO CLOSE.

On Wednesday the 18th of June, we organized a screen printing workshop, during which kids aged between 7 and 12 years old were able to create their first tee-shirt with a Volcom/BX-LAX logo - supervised by the artist Duch and the art department from Volcom.

Everyone left with a smile and a handmade t-shirt!

French:

Volcom est fier d'avoir été partenaire de deux ateliers (sérigraphie et customisation) destinés aux kids dans le cadre de son support de l'exposition BDX-LAX FARAWAY SO CLOSE.

Le mercredi 18 Juin, nous avons proposé un workshop sérigraphie, au cours duquel des enfants âgés de 7 à 12 ans ont pu créer leur premier Tee Shirt Volcom/BDX-LAX encadrés par l'artiste DUCH et le département artistique de Volcom.

Tous sont repartis avec le sourire, et un tee shirt fait main!

On July 9th, a workshop teaching the art of customization in collaboration with other artists of the BX-LAX FARAWAY SO CLOSE exhibition, this time with FREAK CITY and AEROSEPT. The kids created custom hats with visuals of their choice, as well as a 3D stone they were encouraged to customize with plenty of available mediums - painted, colored, glued, and more!

Thank you to the artists present at the exhibition and the workshops, to Carine from BX-LAX and the entire art department from Volcom.

Le 9 Juillet, c'était un atelier basé autour de la customisation toujours en partenariat avec des artistes de l'exposition, avec cette fois–ci FREAK CITY et AEROSEPT. Les enfants ont ainsi créé des casquettes avec des visuels de leur choix, ainsi que des stones 3D qu'ils ont peints, coloriés, collés, etc…

Encore merci aux artistes présents, à Carine de BDX-LAX et à tout l'Art département de Volcom.

June 16th:

Last Friday the official opening of the exhibition "BX-LAX FARAWAY SO CLOSE" was set up in Bordeaux inside the amazing venue of "Espace Saint Remi".

Bordeaux, capital of the South West of France, is maybe one of the most enjoyable cities in France -especially in the spring season where you can hang out outside in the middle of old stone buildings enjoying a cold drink on a terrace.

BDX-LAX Faraway So Close aims to be the link between artists with common influences (graffiti, street art, underground Comics, freestyle) and a unique gathering point for a strong and alternative cultural scene, with multiple artistic scopes.

More than 10 artists from the USA and France were exhibiting at the artshow, and most of them were present on this Friday the 13th of June!

In addition to the exhibition, free drinks and free food guaranteed the success of the edition 2014 with tons of people visiting the expo.

Many thanks to the Art Department of Volcom for their work and to Carine, who managed a great event!

If you're living in Bordeaux - don't miss the exhibition - open to the public until July 13th; and on Wednesday June 18th, we will be conducting a silkscreening workshop at the venue with the artist Duch.

LONDON PHOTOGRAPHER LEILA AFGHAN IN NYC WITH SKATE GIRLS BRIANA AND YASMEEN
We were fortunate enough to sit with the 3 coolest chicks we know and ask them about everything skate. If you don’t know them already, you will. London based photographer (@leilaafghan), New York skater and model Briana King (@brianaking_) and Brooklyn babe Yasmeen Wilkerson (@yaz.so.mean) strutted their stuff in front of the camera and gave us some insight into their world. Leila, what's your favorite type of photography style and atmosphere to shoot? LEILA: I like weird and surreal - I shoot digital and film, but prefer the dreamy effect with film. When did you start taking skate pics and what took you there? LEILA: I started in fashion styling and photography, but am now progressing and combining documentary style, hence, taking pictures of me and my friends. Where is your favorite spot to shoot skate? LEILA: New York. Favorite spot to skate? YASMEEN: My favorite spot to skate is something new I've been fucking with called Delancey spot or BOCA LES spot. Its a walkway near the Willy B Bridge in Manhattan with a cement block, benches, curbs and other diy stuff. BRIANA: Coleman skate park. Where is the first place you skated? YASMEEN: The first place I skated was an empty parking lot by my house. I was too intimidated to skate in the open as I do now, and I barely knew how to push so I would take my board out there and try to ollie and get comfortable. BRIANA: Out front of the apartment. Where was the last place you skated? YASMEEN: LES skate park is the last place I skated. BRIANA: Blue Park Brooklyn. How many bones have you broken? BRIANA: 1 ankle. I attempted to ollie over 4 decks in front of a four stair, rolled my ankle, broke it, and couldn't trick or treat that night with my newly broken ankle. YASMEEN: My wrist (Smith fracture). Best thing about skating? YASMEEN: Best thing about skating is everything about it. The little lessons it gives you in humility, confidence, and persistence. Skateboarding taught me that strength isn't always physical. BRIANA: The homies! If I didn't skateboard I would be a lonely bub in NYC. And the worst thing about skating? BRIANA: There is no worst thing. YASMEEN: The fuck boys. ALL PHOTOS BY LEILA AFGHAN
