MAKE YOUR OWN DESTINY: KINGSWELL LOS FELIZ

by • July 18, 2014 • Los Angeles MakersComments Off597

Kingswell Los Feliz combines everything the creative could dream of – skateboarding, artistic integrity, tattoo and fine art, into one rad shop. Located in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, the shop caters to the artistic movers and shakers of skateboarding culture. Founded by DJ Chavez and Patrick Melcher, the storefront is located in Walt Disney’s first studio… that means upon walking into Kingswell, you are in the space where Walt drew his first comic book.

You can feel the creative energy radiating in the store – from being the skateboarder’s paradise to having an art gallery nestled within the business, I felt instantly inspired by the waves of eclectic artistic expression in the store. Always paying homage to their Walt Disney roots, there are pages upon pages of Disney related flash patrons can get tattooed with.

“The retail side is consuming enough and then having the gallery side of it…” DJ begins. While he admits it can be overwhelming to run a multifaceted shop, he is taking it all in stride, by immediately saying “But, it is worth it. I think we are doing something different.” Blurring the boundaries between much adored counterculture industries? Yeah, I would say it is something else. Come check out the shop for yourself at 4651 Kingswell Ave Los Angeles, CA 90027.
