Presidents' Hair Cut
According to Paolo Proserpio "American Presidents have a beautiful haircut", enough to win the main wall of the bastard bowl with the Wall Paint Contest 2015.
Starting May 7, a two months delirium made of acrylics, wood, cockroaches, pigeons, Big Babols, spray cans, nails and screws, reveals details and pieces of the pop culture. Jackie, the most stylish wife of all (John Fitzgerald Kennedy R.I.P. 1963) is effigy of the brand of the Presidents' hair lacquer: Hair Cut.
A pattern on the label mix sacred and profane: Lee Harvey Oswald (killer of Kennedy) with Jack Ruby (killer of the killer of the 35th president), whose eponymous band is also the soundtrack of these two months of work.
The 60 Jaquelines Lee Bouvier watch with their third eye on the 5 presidents of the 5 American notes: 1, 5, 10, 20 and 100 sprouting from the bowl (such as the Rocky Mountains) in size 8.10 x 1.90 meters with an optical pattern.
Presidents' Hair Cut was installed on July 4, 2015: Independence Day.

Lambrotherday Skate Party
Sunday May 24 there is party going on with the Lambrothers, starting from 3PM at the Parco Lambro Skatepark (subway green line M2 Udine stop). Come with friends, it doesn't matter if they ride on skateboard or not, it will be fun.
[...] si festeggia un pezzo di storia del bowlriding italiano: dodici anni di skateboarding in parco Lambro! Il contest inizierà dopo le ore 15.00 ma sarà solo un pretesto per fare festa. La direzione artistica di questa "jungle edition" è affidata a Edo Paris che ha sviluppato una formula ispirata direttamente alla selezione naturale: la Royal Rumble! Quest'anno saremo supportati da una coralità di companies, distributori, associazioni, enti locali ed artisti. La colonna musicale dell'evento sarà come sempre curata da dj Machete. Con la clemenza del bel tempo si prospetta una domenica on fire. Would you like some bananas?

Termites do not forgive in Washington D.C.
When Washington D.C.'s skater and photographer Anthony Smallwood (@brokensquare on the gram) stopped by the bastard store for a visit sometime ago, he had told us about his ongoing work on the documentary photo book of a pool skating scene located in Washington DC. It was too good for not to spread the word in our circle. Read More...

Wall Paint Contest 2015 winner
Today the jury made their final decision on WPC entries, and we have the winner...
Paolo Proserpio, with his work named Presidents' Hair Cut Rocks that you see in the picture above. Paolo (Proserpio as we call him here) isn't a new name for us, as he frequently collaborates with bastard on different levels and on different graphical projects. We always have a subject in common: the print. He also teaches Printing Techniques and Brand Identity at the IED school in Milano.
Proserpio will use collage, acrylics and even some spray paint (hair lacquer?!) for his work on the main wall, in the coming days. If you want to know more about this dude follow him on instagram @paoloproserpio Read More...

Max Bonassi x Local Rats
The new bastard Local Rats t-shirt is a tribute to two of the skaters that left their deepest mark at the bastard bowl: Jacopo Carozzi and Aref Koushesh.
The artwork, pencil designed by the italian father of skateboarding Max Bonassi, in full 80s style, is inspired by one the the best shots ever taken in the bowl by photographer Giuliano Berarducci. The original photo has been published on Thrasher Magazine, as a poster on SHARE Skateboarding and is available as a free gift in the shape of a postcard at the bastard store.
