Large Painting for Window Display in Divonne, France
One of my first opportunities to do an original piece of work came when I met the guys from “Art of Apparel”. Art of Apparel is street wear shop in Divonne (France). They specialize in street wear brands that not only appeal to the street artist in me but, the skate boarder that longs to ride every single hand rail I see. They challenged me to come up with a window display that spoke to their customers while providing an interesting frame to their store entrance. By using my collage techniques and a bit of freehand brush work, I created this piece in 4 days. If you are every in Divonne (France) stop by and take a look.
Collaboration with Leaf Skateboards
For the last 20 years, skateboarding has lived in my blood. During that time I always dreamed of designing and releasing my own line of skateboards that displayed my artwork. In 2013, this dream came true with Leaf Skateboards! Working closely with Leaf Skateboards, we selected 3 different designs for collaboration. We have two released to the public today and in spring of 2014 we will be releasing the 3rd and final design. Keep an eye on Leaf Skateboards if you want to pick up one of these decks.
"Marché des Artisans" in Nyon, Switzerland
My artwork has always appealed to a younger generation. In an attempt to reach a more mature group and to expose more individuals to my style and message I signed up for the "Marché des Artisans" In Nyon (Switzerland). The market is held on a monthly basis in front of a shopping mall in Nyon. During the market I had the opportunity to speak to many people about my artwork discussing my technique, inspirations, and plans for the future. It would be safe to say that my work appeals to many age groups.
Collaboration with Fibretec Longboards
After a long life of skate boarding I started to experiment with long boarding. This new obsession quickly led to an interest in getting my artwork on a long board. After meeting Reinke from Fibretec Longboards, it was decided that my style and artwork would make a great addition to their long board designs. We settled on the “Choose Your Fate” piece and laid it to rest on a limited edition Fat’n Flat Longboard. Receiving a sample in the mail was a fantastic moment but, even more exciting after I kitted it out and went bombing down a hill on it!
Collaboration with Karmic Revolution Clothing
One of my first collaborations was with the clothing company, Karmic Revolution. The gang from KR contacted me back in 2012 after they caught some of my work online and they were interested in putting my work on their fabric. After hearing their pitch and their interest in organic fabrics and sustainable development / production, I was more than ready to work with them. I provided numerous designs to their product line and if you look closely, you can see my work walking around Switzerland and France.
