Thomas Campbell Brings Iconic Bronze Sculptures to Element’s Perspective Series

Today, Element unveiled its new line of Element Perspective skateboards featuring graphics from Thomas Campbell’s popular Bronze sculpture series made from reclaimed materials that inspire the artist.  These boards were created and designed for team riders Nick Garcia, Ray Barbee, Evan Smith and Madars Apse. Check out Thomas Campbell elaborate on his perspective influences here:

“The concept of this project was sparked from the idea that by bringing my bronze work into the board series, it would provide an access point to other forms of art, and the possibility of others being inspired to make shit and be creative,” said Thomas Campbell, Element Advocate and artist. “To balance out the graphic action, I got to lay down some hand styled lettering, and best of all, got to hand pick my favorite shredders on the team to do graphics for. Stoked.”

An Element advocate for the last five years, Campbell utilizes multiple mediums for his creations, with his sculptures as a focus of this recent product line. Working with bronze is a favorite art form for Campbell and allows him to merge the seriousness of the craft with the humor that is often lacking in this age-old process.
