Dogtown is an homage to the Legendary Skateboarding Company from Venice, California. As a child living in Paris is the 80’s I remember looking at skate magazines and seeing the unique shaped Dogtown boards and their cross logo. I didn’t know the history of the brand then but the shapes and design stayed burned into my memory. Many years later while I was living in NYC I saw the documentary Dogtown and the Z boys and learned about Venice (Dogtown) being the birth place of modern skateboarding so it was obvious to me once life lead me to move to Venice that I had to paint about this long time relationship Dogtown and I have had since I was a wee boy. It is perfect that rapper @luck_inthev is in the picture as he is born and raised in Venice.
