My Beavory DIY Skateboard Project Inspired By My Adventures In California

enjoytheride

I had always been fascinated about murals and DIY projects, and constantly tracking artists and trends around the world. I love the impact my art has on its environment. When you paint, you create a microcosms where people step inside, wonder and link with your art. If you do it right, your artwork becomes the canvas for other people’s life and experiences.

I wanted to share my new project Dylan’s skateboard. I was inspired by my recent adventures around sunny California (which is also the place we call home for the past 10 month) . Traveling and going out of my comfort zone is always a great thing for an artist!

My hero carrying my message to the world is Dylan the turtle (which is one of my favorite characters of Beavory and also considered to be a world traveler). I would like to inspire kids world wide to believe in the importance of enjoying the ride and living the moment!
Beavory art is playful, colorful and fun for all ages, it blends perfectly in urban places and nature and people simply love it.

We’re slowly working our way towards offering a Little Chimp award to a deserving recipient. This is the award! Isn’t he cool. There still lots of work to do and we need to select someone to win it, but in the meantime we wanted to share this nifty photo of him with you. The 3D modelling was done by the talented Metin Seven and it was printed by Shapeways.

Old Boxes New Lives

One day my sister and I were scavenging our grandfather’s attic and we stumbled upon these intricate little boxes with slide covers and carved handles. We stuck them with glue against the walls that were inside our closets and those boxes became our secret treasure compartments where we’d collect and hide our findings, like comic book clippings and little mice figures that my sister made out of cloth material.

Then I grew up and boxes just stayed with me. Now I go to antique shops and buy old cigar boxes. I try to look for the old wooden ones that are dark and deeply stained so when I carve into the wood, the lighter colored or the unstained wood shows through and creates a good contrast to the carved images.
