Skate Art

Marc Argelich Trigo A.K.A (Matdisseny) was born in Manresa (Barcelona) in 1976. Graduated in Graphic Design from the Art School of Terrassa (Barcelona) in 2003.

Shaping a recycle skateboard is a painstaking process, and it can take a graphic artist like #matdisseny six to eight hours to craft a single board. Meanwhile, a factory with an assembly line can use a CNC machine to turn out a board in minutes and repeat the process hundreds of times a day.

Those boards are, in many ways, the same as the boards that Marc crafts; But they’re also completely different, they’re a commodity.

For many people, skateboarding is more than a sport, it’s a spiritual experience; Marc knows that and gets the best colors, shapes, and illustrations to create a new custom object with a unique design, and all this from a recycled skateboard or sometimes on a new blank deck.

Marc has been crafting since he
started the “Skate Art” project in 2014.
