Organika’s latest collaboration with Brian Lotti came about through Karl Watson – who credits Brian as one of the major influences on his style. This new series consists of four boards that show vertical landscapes winding through scenery ranging from the East Oakland Hills, an isolated area of Brazil, the wine country north of San Francisco, and a downtown area in New Jersey; all of which directly relate to each of the pro’s on the team. This theme of environments shaping the individual ties into a concept that Brian calls the “New Natives” which he describes as follows, “Day after day, people are out skating – out in the landscape. I think a big part of what we dig in skateboarding is not just doing tricks, it’s our relationship to different places, and how we kind of move and journey about. That’s a big part of our life. So yeah, in a way I would say skateboarders – they’re like the new natives… we’re like the new Indians.”
Brian Lotti and Karl Watson will be @ the Kayo Fairfax Flag ship store showcasing
Brian Lotti’s art work, plus the original sketches and wood blocks for the new Board series collaboration done with Karl Watson for Organika. Sign up for the event at the Organika facebook now.
