Arkitip | C.R. Stecyk III

“The seventh installment of Curated by Arkitip is now available, featuring works by multimedia artist C.R. Stecyk III. From his early work on boards he painted for the Z-Boys to his iconic black and white photography of surf and skate legends, Stecyk is widely acknowledged as a major stylistic influence within graffiti and street art movements.

Stecyk’s work for Curated by Arkitip highlights iconic imagery and color combinations representative of the early days of modern skate and surf culture. The 15″ MacBook Pro Sleeve features an early Stecyk photograph of Jay Adams, one of the original Z-Boys considered a progenitor of modern-day skateboarding. Stecyk’s skull design for the iPhone 3GS Snap Case recalls graffiti art that typified skateboarding in its early days, such as Stecyk’s infamous Pig and Crossbones graffiti piece that became a symbol for the nascent culture’s attitude and style.

In celebration of the release of the Stecyk series, Incase and Arkitip have worked with C.R. Stecyk to produce a limited-edition of 100 signed screen prints of the skull design featured on the iPhone 3GS Snap Case. The prints are available exclusively through Arkitip and at Project Space in Los Angeles located at 603 N. La Brea Avenue.” (via)
