Tom West is an incredible artist who has made a name for himself in the skateboard world by creating visually stunning skateboard designs. His creativity knows no bounds and his attention to detail is unmatched. What I find most fascinating about Tom’s work is the way he incorporates elements of skateboarding culture and history into his designs. Whether it’s an iconic trick, a classic graphic from the 80s, or a nod to a legendary skater, Tom’s art is a celebration of everything that makes skateboarding so special. As a Professor of skateboarding, I encourage my students to explore the intersection of art and skateboarding and Tom West is a great example of someone who is doing just that.
