GRIPTAPE ART

TATTOOING THE GRIPTAPE - TATUANDO LA LIJA

Colección " griptape " esta basada en la lija de skate. Rascando la lija se consigue una gama de grises que forman los dibujos.

 

After working for a time with common materials like acrylic or pencil, Artwar stumbled across a new technique and artistic medium: skateboard “sandpaper”.

            All the years he spent on a skateboard gave him more than just fun and the odd injury; they were also the inspiration for this new technique. It all started one boring day with a skateboard in one hand and a box cutter in the other.

The main material in the “griptape” collection is sandpaper. Here, “sandpaper” refers to grip tape, the rough sandpaper-like material on the skateboard that prevents the sneakers from sliding.
