Blondey McCoy, the 21 year-old former skater, has found himself a new gig. After leaving Palace Skateboards last month, he's launched his own Pop-Up and exhibition of original works, set to open tomorrow in Los Angeles.

The artwork displays a penchant for twentieth century culture: "Scandal", for example, features Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice Davies leaving the Royal Courts of Justice after giving their testimonies during the Profumo affair, in which the Secretary of State for War had an affair with a nineteen year-old model. Alternatively, "The Loved One" is a resin reproduction of actor Sal Mineo as Plato from Rebel Without a Cause.

British photographer Alasdair McLellan also had a hand in the pop-up, having taken photos of Blondie McCoy alongside "The Loved One" at the Griffith Park Observatory in L.A.

The Blondey McCoy pop-up is open the 10th through the 13th of May at 2270 Venice Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90006. See the rest of the apparel in the slideshow below.
