2013 NYC Artists

Stefan G. Bucher wants you to relax, man.

MainImage-Bucher

When looking at his collected works, Stefan Bucher can seem rather playful, irreverent and possibly goofy. But with his board for BB NYC, he seems to be taking  a counseling role, asking you to let go. Shut off that negative voice in your head and LET GO(!). He wants you to have fun and enjoy […] | More…

Caution: Wet Paint

Brian Alfred Bordo Bello Detail

Brian Alfred is a paint changer. He is a globally recognized artist from Brooklyn, which is pretty serious business. You would be lucky to buy one of his pieces for the same price as a down payment on a house. But wait, you have the chance to be even luckier! | More…

Miles High with Jeremy Pruitt

MainImage-Pruitt

As one of the Colorado-based artist at this year’s BB, Jeremy Pruitt really represented the Centennial State. With vintage logo-inspired icons on a monochromatic base, he’s covered high country activities like camping, fishing and hunting, but made sure to include another of Colorado’s legacies: beer. Great typography and fun execution! thinkmule.com | More…

Lines and lines and lines and lines and lines…

MainImage-Debbie

Debbie Clapper is a surface design ninja. Not a Eurovan, nor iPhone cover, nor socks, nor luggage can stump this lady. Making finely detailed, complex geographic designs without a ruler is Debbie’s specialty and she takes it to all lengths. She’s created a board every year since 2010 for BB and this year she provided us […] | More…

Robots and birdies with Shaw Nielsen

MainImage-Shaw

Anthropomorphic boom boxes, cigarette smoking skyscrapers, paint spills and a rogue train car—Shaw Nielsen has really brought it for BBNYC. As another one of Bordo Bello’s special friends, Shaw not only made boards for each event since 2009, he also created all the branding material for BB 2010. With his trademark bright colors and simple […] | More…

James Victore: Provocateur > Raconteur > Churos y Beer

MainImage-Victore

Rabble-rouser and designer extraordinaire James Victore is more known for his inspiring teaching, events and workshops than his knowledge of mexican food menu structure. But he graced us with a dose of the latter in a bold, messy and charming hand lettered board. While this could very well be a commentary on society or the […] | More…

‘Just the facts, ma’am.’ Brian Singer spells it out.

MainImage-Singer

A master of condensing a message down to its very essence and clearing away any noise, Brian Singer seems the perfect kind of artist to use a skateboard deck as canvas. From a practical viewpoint, a skateboard as art has to deliver an impact in the second or two it takes to roll past the […] | More…
