5 questions to SHIVAM :
What is your artistic universe ?
My artistic world usually consists of food, adventure, making designs and having fun. I like trying different things and doing creative every day.
How would you define your graphic style ?
My domain in graphic style is vast. I try my hands at different styles starting from inking to illustration and minimal as well. I try expanding my domain every day and that marks my achievement.
What is your relation with skateboarding ?
Skateboarding is not a sport, it is a culture in itself, something which becomes a reflection of your personality and style. I did have a skateboard when I was a kid and had fun riding it.
What is the connection between your art and skateboarding ?
I like inking the ideas for skateboards as much as I like riding one. I always wanted to work on skateboards and make something cool. My art is bold, trippy and fun. So is skateboarding.
How did you envisage this collaboration ? Why this drawing ?
I got in touch with LE SHAPE over Instagram and was pretty amazing to see someone with same vision. I had this idea of printing this savage which is hunger, wild and raw which would look nice on board. I discussed it with the team and it was cool to have someone with the same vision. I didn't think twice and got started on the project.
