The good folks over at HUF Worldwide recently unveiled a new art show honoring the life of the late artist, musician, and skateboarder Pablo Ramirez. The exhibition is being held at SOMArts, boasting work from over 100 artists from San Francisco and the global arts community. The showcase includes the works of Haroshi, Mark Gonzales, Ed Templeton, and more.
In 2019 Ramirez tragically passed away at the age of 26 when he was hit by a dump truck in SF’s South of Market area. Known as a prolific skater, Ramirez was a passionate artist who held the mantra that “life is beautiful.”
The month-long exhibition was made in conjunction with the Pablo Ramirez Foundation (PRF) and includes work from prominent contemporary artists alongside many drawings and paintings that Ramirez passionately created. Proceeds from both the HUF x PRF capsule, magazine, and “The Power of Pablo” weekend events will benefit PRF. This will allow the foundation to continue to provide opportunity and advocacy for the youth.
Take a closer look at a few standouts from the showcase below and find out more from PRF right now. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the intersection of style and art.
