This Wood Is Made For Flying

Customised handcrafted skate deck.

My friends from Swing Estudio invited me to participate in Feelin’ Wood, a collective exhibition organised by them with the support of Rivendel and Rubio Skateboards. The idea was to customise the beautiful handcrafted decks manufactured by Rubio. I always have been excited with the idea of doing a lettering on a skate deck, so I couldn’t refuse the invitation to participate on the project.

I’ve been attracted by the skateboarding culture since I was a teenager so, taking advantage of the occasion, I wanted to make a wink to the defy the law of gravity that the skateboarders do with their tricks.
