About this video: Since 2008, AIGA Colorado’s Bordo Bello has been breathing life into the Denver arts community and supporting mentorship programming. Through this skateboard art show, we have seen over 1000 artists show their work in celebration of the Colorado lifestyle – the connection of work, life & fun. This year Thumbdemon took it to New York at the AIGA National Center. Bordo Bello approached them to build a monstrous (pun intended) light box for the window display and they jumped at that opportunity. The result was phenomenal. This is the making of the piece, called – Rise and Skate.
Size: 6ft x 6ft backlit wooden box, Medium – Mohawk fine paper.
