At Street Plant we Value the Art Of Skateboarding, and so we put the Artist First. We could never make logo boards, blanks or “team boards” because we Believe that a Skateboard Deck is a Canvas for the Artist and that it should be Adorned with Artistic Expression and Infused with Purposeful Energy. Where so much of the Art in Skateboarding has been suburbanized through the corporate filters, we are seeking a Deeper Connection with the Artists that we work with, to Design Skateboard Graphics that Inspire Creativity and that Elevate the Senses.
In that Spirit, every now and then, we host a Garageland Art Jam, to let the Artists we work with cut loose on some Hand Painted Designs. Very early on, Greg Higgins was the catalyst for these Sessions, and so it was great to host him here in Garageland once again for another Jam Session.
Watching Greg work, having close proximity to the process and getting to dialogue with him throughout these Sessions has been a real Honor.
