Though he co-founded Alien Workshop, Mike Hill isn’t the type to passively run a brand. Hill also acts as the driving creative force behind the brand, having conceived the aesthetic of the highly influential skateboard label. To celebrate Hill’s longstanding career, Vans and Uprise Skateshop in Chicago threw a retrospective exhibition for the artist. The exhibit took place at Peanut Gallery in Humboldt Park and featured figurines, skateboards and other highlights from the artist’s body of work. Enjoy a recap of the appearances and highlighted work above, which coincided with the release of Hill’s collaborative kicks alongside Vans Syndicate.
