Chris Pastras With Paul Rodriguez
Los Angeles, CA
Chris Pastras emanates natural creativity. Stemming from his Noside Banks skate roots and extending throughout his dynamic visual art, Chris maintains a unique perception of fluid style and progressive technique. Aware of these qualities, fellow skater and Dew athlete Paul Rodriguez didn’t think twice before inviting Chris to participate in a true collaboration of skate and art. During a 72-hour brainstorming session between these two skate icons, various design concepts were thoughtfully sketched. Paul’s lifelong aspiration to visit Egypt kept showing up in design ideas, and their creative alliance evoked “Pharaohs of Dew.” The Pastras-Rodriguez partnership is an archetype of cultural object d’art.
