  • the first two the best. very nice way of describing the form through shapes and colord

    OH MY GOD, I know I freak out about a lot but I swear this is different, like the color, the brushstrokes, I’m losing my mind everything on his website = just as amazing.

    • yea i kinda freaked out when i saw that first image on his site, it has such an amazing style

  • jack

    maybe new favorite artist. like klimt but alive.

  • Ruth

    I also thought it was very reminiscent of Klimt in the combination of smooth skin and bold patterns.

  • These paintings are stunning!! The mixture of colors and brush strokes are amazing. Is the artist using acrylic paint?

  • One of his paintings was used by Pains of Being Pure at Heart as the cover of their single “Say no To Love”.

  • jack

    liked all, exempt the first, the styles contested too much

  • fantastique!

  • Vicki

    It looks as though the subjects are being eaten alive by a paint virus. In a brilliant way.

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
