Wängl Tängl Art Exhibition – Looking Sideways

The Wängl Tängl is not just a contest. I could be rather more be classified as a contestival. It is the rad mixture of urban art and music, which go next to the skate and snowboarding events. This year’s art exhibition at the Tängl is hosted by Looking Sideways, a crew of artists which is under the Vans label, like Fos, French, Blaise Rosenthal, Ed Templeton, Tristan Huber, Corey Smith, Schoph, Danny Wainwright, Danny Larsen and Tim Karpinski.

It’s been great to be part of a show that brings together such a strong line-up of artists and it’s pretty amazing to see everyone’s different styles„, said artist Schoph, who used the occasion to premiere a new work called Dead Questions in the Eyes. „I’ve been in plenty of shows now but the Looking Sideways crew have definitely raised the bar in terms of the space and the quality of the work„.

Other highlights at the show included a huge 6′ by 4′ illustration by skater and artist French, which dominated the gallery in Mayrhofen’s Europahaus, and the start of a huge live art piece by Looking Sideways art director Owen Tozer. It’s being created using images sent in by members of the public, who were invited to contribute to the project by uploading images of their eyes looking sideways to the LS Facebook page, or by emailing them to eyes@wearelookingsideways.com.

The final piece will be used to create the graphics for an exclusive run of limited edition Looking Sideways x Endeavor x Vans Wängl Tängl snowboards, with the winners of the boards chosen from those who contributed images.

Tozer and some of the artists in attendance at the show will be working on the piece on site at the Europahaus throughout the week, so members of the public have until Friday 23rd March (tomorrow!) to send in their eyes and have a chance of winning one of the boards.
