Rockabilly, surf style
THE rockabilly surf culture combines surf, Kustom and rockabilly cultures, a la hot rods, surf art and the 1950s aesthetic.
To celebrate the scene, the Chinatown Boardroom is exhibiting works by 17 artists in "Rockabilly Surf Show" through June 29. Eric Walden, owner of the gallery, gathered 15 local artists and two from the mainland for the show.
The colorful display includes two custom surfboards built by 12th Floor Foam and Glass and detailed by Robert Nickles, and paintings by renowned surf artist Damian Fulton.
Chinatown Boardroom, located at 1160 Nuuanu Ave., is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays and to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Call 585-7200.
