Tada‘s show “Dick Skinners” was something I was looking forward to for a few weeks. At least ever since I knew it was going to be in Basel. So we jumped in Juli’s VW and off we went. Lukas joined us, a threesome!

We knew Mico and Kupa from the R.O.W. would be there too… but running into them when we arrived at Portland was so nice! You gotta love them! I All of that slovenian R.O.W/Boldrider gang are great people. if you know them, you know what i mean! if not-i cross my fingers for you!

So we all went to see Tada’s show at “Gallery Daeppen“. A really nice place with loads of cool art and zines and whatnot,you better go there sometime. I wish we had a place like that in my hometown, i would spend all my pocket money in there!
Tadas pictures on the walls of the gallery are a real blast! i knew some of the work he hung before ,but seeing them nice printed ,all together with some good stories from Tada and that really great display he came up with, was so good!
The show will be until October 10th if you are around and Tadej Vaukman‘s book “Dick Skinners” can be bought here.
Then Aftersow BBQ in Portland and chilling with Guillome, cool dude and owner of the gallery.He brought more Beer and some special swiss stuff for everybody to eat- cheers not only for that, its so good to see someone pushing and supporting the work of all those rad artists!
The next day was skating. There is some fun, new concrete near Basel that we checked out and of course we had a nice session in Portland! YEW!!
