5 questions to Thales
What is your artistic universe ?
My artistic universe comes down to one dude with a tower head who takes many forms. Very pop culture influenced and very optimistic (when I’m not trying to kill him with wrecking balls and whatnot).
How would you define your graphic style ?
Simple lines, iconic and recognizable. when I wake up energetic it’s highly detailed and when I’m lazy it’s… not.
What is your relation with skateboarding ?
Been on one most of my life. it's my favorite thing in the world, It’s how I go from place to place, it’s how I dress, it’s even what I paint sometimes.
What is the connection between your art and skateboarding ?
It appears in some of my favorite pieces and hopefully it will be on a deck one day. Well…
How did you envisage this collaboration ? Why this drawing ?
I tried to imagine what would look good with this crazy carving technique and yet stay true to my line.
