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.
Wetdecks ‘Skate the World’
Debut Expo: Kube Gallery, Bergen, Norway. Sept 2017
Each board in the ‘Skate the World’ series of Wetdecks has been inspired by a specific place in the world – either personal to me or to the skaters that have donated the decks.
Expo: Wynwood Point Gallery, Barcelona, Spain. November 2017
Bigger is Better. The Cosmic Wetdecks serier features large pieces like a surfboard, kiteboard and wakeboard and draws its inspiration from the planets and wild nebulas of our universe.
