When Artist Greg Higgins was tapped by Andy Howell to create Mike Vallely’s “Mammoth” graphic for New Deal back in 1991 it was supposed to be a joke. The image Higgins came up with, however, turned out to be something more than a symbol of extinction and surrender. Instead Higgins created an icon of Vallely’s strength and resilience. Higgins continues to create art inspired by his roots in a time when BMX and skate culture was intertwined, and his images are a vital part of Street Plant’s roots.
