Daniel Peña

George Toland globetrotter

Too hyperactive for us to even get to keep track of his pace, George Toland, the London-based Sony VX-1000 piloting expert who's normally a regular on this website recently dropped not just one, but two remarkable montages of footage collected throughout the Americas - more specifically in Queretaro, Mexico (where he notably skated with Daniel Peña and Adán Belío, whose video "EL OMBLIGO DE LA LUNA" LIVE recently presented, for Milquinientosveintiuno) and in Heredia, Costa Rica (where he wasn't without catching up with Miguel Castro and Francisco Saco, both formerly met at the Croatian Vladimir Film Festival where they had showed their video: "CANASTA"). That's two times short of twenty minutes brimming with colorful spots and organic styles, masterfully captured by a Serious Adult increasingly prone to the itinerant lifestyle.

For more Costa Rica, we may send you back to the recent "GRINGO DIARIES" by Chris Komodromos and, for more Mexico, well, just stay tuned for the next few days...

"El Ombligo De La Luna" / PREMIERE / Daniel Peña / INTERVIEW

Daniel Peña is a longtime skater and activist from Mexico City, strong of peregrinations in zine and garment production and, since 2017, the mastermind behind Milquinientosveintiuno - or "1521" - his current point of focus, having put together a team of homies with a common interest for urban skate aesthetics and general creative processes. "EL OMBLIGO DE LA LUNA" is the brand's newest (and first official) audiovisual offering, originally introduced to LIVE by mutual connection Jesse Narvaez and now available for y'all to watch, and stare at now ever-so-foreign skies but also study the variety in architecture, approaches and styles Mexico can put on display. And of course, we also caught up with Daniel himself in order to learn more, resulting in this interview, below!
