Mike Aches - Battalion

Date Of Birth: November 22, 1974
Hometown: North Braddock, PA
Current City: Pittsburgh, PA

In 1988 I sat on the steps outside my house and wrote the name Vallely in white chalk on the griptape of my Dogtown skateboard. Out of all the skateboards I owned as a kid for some reason that was the only one I kept for all of these years. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think 29 years later that I would meet my childhood hero, Mike Vallely, and join the Street Plant Battalion as an artist. Though the years have passed, I still remain a street skating, urethane dog with an intense passion for art. Once a skater, always a skater! My art and skateboarding were locked in a room for many years until the Street Plant Battalion arrived and helped me smash the door into a million pieces unleashing a fury that continues today. The seriousness and intensity I bring to my artwork can sometimes be mistaken for anger, but it is only intensity and electricity. I knew that Mike V would be the only artist/skater that would understand my sometimes aggressive nature and would harness this energy for good. Now I will go forth and Skate, Create, and Enjoy into the future! KEEP PUSHING FORWARD!!
