A love of skateboards, art and a curiosity of zombies lead to the brand BoardZombies. Aspiring to stay alive and free. The conscious amongst us stand together on boards of fantasy. Original art work and graphic design brings the board back to life. It's a matter of survival. Board, resist being bored.
Board Zombies was an idea of Paul Wright, an English, Brighton born and bred breather. How to describe Paul? Well, he's a drumming, pizza eating old school skater. A serious Walking Dead fan with an interest in survival. Described as a gentle if nonconforming soul. A vegetarian cat lover.... Paul moved to rural France 3 years ago with his wife and tweeny sons. A total change of scenery and culture. Well, why not? The plan was to concentrate on creativity, doing those things they'd always wanted to do and embrace their reputations as tree huggers. Paul has a history of working in the 3D industry but is now free to create what he wants and has found himself drawing body parts – read into that what you will!
Zombie body parts are the theme and the pictures are based on himself and those closest to him. They are bold and gruesome. Not for the younger skaters amongst us. The art work uses photos, cartoon and digital drawing to create head turning, sick images that you will not want to crash from.
Will your feet rest on The Smile, The Foot or even The Guts? In your face and haunting. Perhaps the Drink Me Bottle will appeal to the more curious of us. All isn't as it appears. Is that just chilli in that oil? Blood stained hand prints, watching eyes.....these are not decks for the faint hearted.
