Alta Vista Skate Shop Y Gallery, a splendid place that fuses the traditional skate-shop vibe with an arty bent, presents an exhibition of work by artist and skater Daniel Howard, who works under the nom de paintbrush Toybox Monster. And if that first sentence didn’t contain enough off-kilter juxtapositions to whet your curiosity, Howard’s work, brightly colored and playfully morose, is worth seeing for novelty reasons alone. This exhibit is entirely comprised of art made on or from recycled skateboards. Check out some of his work before you head out: instagram.com/toybox_monster.
