Carhartt WIP x ISLE SK8 x RAPHAËL ZARKA
Skateboarding and contemporary art fuse quite perfectly within the collaboration of Carhartt WIP, ISLE Skateboards and Raphaël Zarka.
Poetry in three d. Zarka's exploration of spacial geometry welcomes a new dimension through the motions of skateboarding. Sylvain Tognelli was the first pick to represent this project as he is having a good eye for skating tight corners. Sure shot.
The geometrical forms are printed as graphics (boards/tshirts) but are also being produced and exhibited as solid wooden sculptures to become geometrical skate obstacle and pieces of art at the same time. The products feature Nick Jensen's researches on perspectives and materials alongside works from guest artists.
