Luke Brabants is recycling, one skateboard at a time. Anyone serious about skateboarding knows that you can go through decks like tissue paper.  So Brabants takes old skateboards that have been piling up, turning them in to new pieces of art for the wall. These old skate decks become unique reclaimed art, with grind marks and all the history of each deck engrained in to them to make each one truly unique. Brabant uses organic shapes from fauna to flora to transform the shape of these decks and then hand cuts using a jigsaw to create a truly different piece of art.
