ARTSY ROOTS OF SKATEBOARDING

At the get-go, skateboarding has been an art form in its own. It's an expression of individualism, creativity, and freedom. When it comes to skateboarding apparel and graphic design, street art plays a huge role. Skate apparel designs often feature bold colors with graffiti elements that blend skate into street art like it’s nothing.


THE RISE OF STREET ART

Street art is as old as the streets themselves. Graffiti started as a subculture for rebels, artists took their canvases to the walls and buildings of cities. Street art is all around the world. It's now a mainstream art form. The fearless creativity of street art has made it a critical element in the world of art. It continues to gain global recognition as time goes by. How cool?


THE INTERSECTION OF STREET ART AND SKATE CULTURE

The connection between the two art forms is natural. The streets have always been a playground for skaters, and it has also been a canvas for street artists. They both take inspiration from the urban landscape and bring it to life in vibrant and dynamic ways. Skate culture is a way of life that celebrates creativity, freedom, and the willingness to take risks. Street art embodies those same core values.
