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 MacBook 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.
The video element to accompany the release of the product line is now online. Similar to what we do with the Chronicles, the video will give the viewer a closer look at the process and inspirations of the artist.
The C.R. Stecyk III products for Curated by Arkitip are available now are available today at Arkitip, Incase, better boutiques and Apple Store locations worldwide.
We are very proud of the results and hope you enjoy our latest collaboration.
