Skateboarding has always walked hand in hand with the art community. Art has influenced skateboarding and skateboarders have influenced art. The rise of social media has allowed for artists to connect to the skateboard community in new ways. French artist Lucas Beaufort knows this too well. His unique take on art and his series of prints created on skateboard photography has been embraced around the globe. Through this Lucas has embarked on a trip around the world, leaving his mark on skateboarders, surfers and snowboarders. Thanks to Converse, the Boardertown College Hill team were lucky enough to have Lucas stop by and create an artwork to hang in store.
The new artwork is hanging in store and is open to view during store hours.
