Description of piece: Hand carved and hand painted, one of a kind skateboard, signed on both top and bottom sides by Tony Hawk
Artist bio: Devin Boutwell’s hand carved skateboard, Risen, was inspired by his hero, Tony Hawk. It’s symbolic of the many Katrina warriors who rose through the challenges of Hurricane Katrina, becoming stronger and more resilient as a result. It was art and the desire to create that paved a path that changed Devin’s life. He now produces custom hand carved and art adorned skateboards and has a devoted following. As would be expected, in Devin’s eyes, Tony Hawk is a rock star in his own right. The celebrity skateboarder has inspired multiple generations of young men and women, and continues to awe those who remain young at heart. The pro boarder’s stunning feats and mastery of his craft ultimately led to immortalization via a series of Tony Hawk video games. The artist has created a special design, inspired by his idol, for the Hope for Habitat: Katrina X exhibit. The board features a Phoenix, rising from the ashes, with the artwork’s title carved within the design. For skaters, it means getting back up, no matter how many times you fall. For Katrina warriors, it means refusing to accept defeat.
This artwork was contributed as part of the “Hope for Habitat: Katrina X” event. See more information at www.RightBrainDiaries.com.
