ANP Quarterly Vol 2 / No 9

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest issue of ANP Quarterly, the printed magazine of RVCA’s Artist Network Program. Now, in publication for over a decade, ANP Quarterly has always landed on the leading edge of popular culture, looking beyond what’s hip and focusing on the creative world through our singular lens. Our new issue Volume 2/Number 9, continues this tradition. ANP Quarterly is available for free at a number of galleries and retailers as well as on our site here. Price on site covers the shipping cost.

In this issue, Features include photographer Jesper Haynes, who documented the 1980s New York art/club scene in stunning black and white; a retrospective interview with artist/designer Susan Cianciolo who many claim single-handedly invented ‘90s deconstructed fashion; as well as a profile on Kevin Ancell, Venice Z-Boy turned painter, interviewed by fellow Dog Towner Jim Muir. Emma Reeves sat down with photographer Cheryl Dunn to speak about her storied career; we spoke to artist Nathaniel Mary Quinn; and entered the wild world of dynamic brother/sister duo Mike and Natalie Krim. We also delve into the world of some of the world’s most unique, up and coming contemporary galleries, go deep into the archives of 1980s LA Punk magazine Slash, and play fly on the wall at a panel discussion on 1990s LA Party Crews with Guadalupe Rosales, helmer of the mind-blowing Instagram feed Veteranas & Rucas. And that’s just the beginning! Pick up a copy because there’s so much more in the issue than we’re able to list here.

Teen Angels | The Exhibition

RVCA was glad to support 'Teen Angels', the Exhibition this past weekend at the LA Art Book Fair. Highlighting the work of Teen Angel and the magazine he created, the exhibition was a hit for many in attendance, especially those inspired and invested in Lowrider and Cholo Culture from the 80's, 90's, and to present day. Check out photos from the exhibition opening and our weekend at the Book Fair below by Morgnar.

About Teen Angel:

Teen Angel began working working full-time as an artist and writer for Lowrider Magazine in 1977. His art graced the pages regularly and soon after became well-known as ‘The Lowrider Artist’, depicting the Lowrider lifestyle in a fun, whimsical way at a time where that culture was not accepted amongst mainstream society. In 1981 he ventured into publishing on his own and started Teen Angels Magazine; with no constraints, he was able to create the magazine as he wanted featuring artwork, dedications, photo- graphs, poems, and articles all focusing on life in the streets of the Varrios of California and the Southwest. The magazine gave voice to a wide swath of young Chicanos, from the gangsters in prison to the young girls looking for love. Where others saw blight and despair, Teen Angel saw beauty and life. Rejected by larger chain stores, the only place to find Teen Angels Magazine was in liquor stores and small mom-and-pop markets in the ‘hood’. He went on to create over 200 issues which today are highly collectable due to their rarity. Teen Angel passed away in early 2015 but his legacy lives on.
