Skateboards and Cartoons: Lucas Beaufort, Double Tapped
Lucas Beaufort is a French artist with a unique love for skateboarding. He took a liking to skating during the `90s in France, a period where skateboarding was on the rise in the US, and the only way he could find out what was going on was by getting his hands on magazines and tapes from overseas.
Lucas Beaufort’s work on Instagram comes out of a period where he wove his own illustrative work into the work he admired. Beaufort created a new and whimsical narrative, inspired by and a testament to the inherent creativity within skateboarding.
