“On the top of my concepts, my main goal in working with Upcycling, is that things can be broken, dirty, no longer available for use, but we can still create something new with it. We can take the best features and bring them to the forefront, for a new life as piece of Art.

As is the nature of life as human beings, we can fail, at a loss broken. But we just have to decide that tomorrow is a whiteboard, a fresh page. We can start anew, bright and shining. We don’t have to replay yesterday tomorrow.”

Making :

– “I’m very excited about giving a new life to used materials, the wood of the skateboard is an amazingly warm and colorful thing”

Each skateboard deck is made of 7 plies of mapple tree, often colored; I’m personally very inspired by this amazing material.  I can then choose among the used skateboards’ decks, the ones that match each other or simply please me, then I assemble and follow my design.”

Skateboarding :

«Skateboarding is real, unadulterated fun. It is a freedom that we can enjoy every single day. Skateboarding is also something that teaches you to stand and rise above fear and barriers.

It’s lot of fails and trials again and again and again … no fear, no pain, no gain …

Lessons we can apply in life, actually! “

 

“ Live as you play a game !

Never be too serious and never stop to play,

not even if you fail !  

The whole point is to play your game!
