Element Europe launched it’s new ‘Emerald Collection‘ in Berlin, Germany on Thursday night. Element Emerald Advocate Thomas Campbell was invited to create a 4-meter wide wall piece to celebrate the occasion.
Even before the 6pm start people were queuing up outside and throughout the evening the ‘Made my Day’ gallery hosted hundreds of visitors keen to see the new collection and Thomas’ wall piece.
High Snobiety filmers and photographers were on hand to cover the event, so stay tuned for the video and photo gallery! In the meantime check out these few photos below and also Thomas Campbells’ website to see more of his work.
Julian Davidson and Nick Garcia came up with this special set of Travel Well cruiser boards, called “Day Trippin’”. Designing them was one thing, but what came next was the fun part; hitting the streets. Nick and Julian headed off to Skate Camp, and took the long road to get there. From bombing hills and crushing rocks to flatground and mini ramps, these boards are truly all terrain vehicles.

Element Advocate and artist Mike Kershnar currently has an amazing art show running at the RVCA gallery in San Francisco, CA entitled “Slam Dance” running through February 4th.
The brief on the show reads:
Slam Dance culminates the last two years of his art practice in the city. The show aims to beautifully reflect the various active components of the universe that combine to create mystery in our lives. Influenced by ritualized shamanic art practices, graffiti, and the spiritual path, Slam Dance seeks to stimulate the creative spirit within people in the gallery space to ripple outward into the larger world. The Slam Dance is the distilled force that comes from synthesizing the ancient and the modern psyches and the urban and natural landscapes.
