British artist/shredder Schoph Schophield has been making quite a name for himself in recent years. It began when he established grassroots lifestyle/hat company Dalikfodda (www.dalikfodda.com), continued through the series of rock tours he organized around the French and Austrian Alps, and is now reaching a peak thanks to his achievements as an artist of no small talent.

His recent show Looking Sideways (www.wearelookingsideways.com) show at the European X Games in Tignes was a sellout, and now he brings his work to the States with a show opening tomorrow at Laguna Beach’s Artists Republic For Tomorrow space, previously home to exhibitions by Jamie Lynn and other assorted shred art luminaries. Schoph is going head to head with another Dragon/Vans affiliated artist, Taylor Reeve, and the show runs from July 7th to July 26th.

If you’re in town, head along to get a glimpse of Schoph’s unique tea-Lemmy-and-Yorkshire inspired artistic vision. He’ll be the guy wearing black and drinking Guinness in the corner.
