The ongoing Covid situation has affected local small businesses and many are struggling to stay open. In an effort to help those small businesses survive, we are featuring them in a segment we call #SmallBusinessShoutout!
Today we'd like to introduce you to Alejandro Gonzalez CEO of 8Th Vision Art
Growing up influenced by Hip Hop and the Surfing culture, Alejandro Gonzalez combined these two elements to create ‘8th Vision Art’.

Grow up in Huntington Beach and living by the beach was a dream. I would spend hours near the pier and catching waves. Mixed with that beach life, I was always around the Hiphop movement. Breakdancing, graffiti, dj’s and emcee’s freestyling in a circle around each other, to me, there was no better feeling.
