Who Is Luz?

Luz is a Dutch board artist.

Her ‘Wetdecks’ art project, named after the fluid wet-look style of painting, gives a second life to old skate, surf and snowboards.

The boards hold a hundred stories – and so Luz uses crystal resin (similar to the famous amber resin that can preserve a dead organism for thousands of years) to restore and preserve both board and legacy of the board rider.

Luz is currently living in Barcelona and exhibits internationally.
