J. Grant Brittain Del Mar Newspaper
REPORTED BY Arkitip, Inc., 19, January 2016
It is with great pride that we announce our second project with J. Grant Brittain. We’ve blown up the format to Newspaper size, perfect for thumb-tacking to your walls. This collection is replete with inspirational moments, in a size that befits their ingenuity.
While working at the Del Mar Skateboard Ranch in 1979 selling Cokes, Twinkies and miniature golf, J. Grant Brittain borrowed his roommate’s Canon and began what would become a 36 year-long affair with skateboarding, cameras and magazines. He helped found Transworld Skateboarding magazine in 1983 and as the Photo Editor for 20 years, helped build it into the top selling skateboarding mag. He has captured the best skateboarders of the last three decades in photos that have become classics. He has also taught some of the best skate photographers past and present and has helped them develop their own work. Grant felt like he was in a well worn rut and has moved on and helped start another magazine in 2003, The Skateboard Mag where he resides to this day.
His “off hours” are consumed by a search for calmer and more serene subjects. Still lakes at night and solitary desert forms are among the subjects of his diverse personal work. His abstracts, portraits, landscapes and travel images seem to draw from the opposite energy of his action shots. Few photographers have pursued so wide a range of subjects and styles. But few individuals find themselves so central to such an active community, where one’s perspective is just a notch askew of the rest, and where movement and progression is the norm. Grant Brittain’s body of work reflects his deep involvement in an emerging youth culture, as well as his escape from it.

Aaron De La Cruz ‘Always Something’ at Public Functionary
REPORTED BY Arkitip, Inc., 6, November 2015
We are proud to support Arkitip Alumni and frequent collaborator Aaron De La Cruz’s newest exhibition ‘Always Something’ at Public Functionary in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
San Francisco-based painter Aaron De La Cruz crosses elements of street art and gestural painting with design-minded structure, creating work that is both instinctual and deliberate. In ‘Always Something,’ De La Cruz continues his ongoing exploration of line and shape with a new body of work for his upcoming show at Public Functionary in Minneapolis. This work includes original paintings, a large-scale mural, a silk screen print, and the debut of a limited edition line of wallpapers produced in conjunction with Public Functionary and artist-designed wallpaper line, Area Environments. The first release in the new PFxAE Exhibition Collection, De La Cruz’s wallpaper will be installed as the backdrop to the exhibit, creating a layered, pattern-rich viewing experience. More information can be found at the gallery website.
To celebrate and compliment the exhibition Arkitip has produced a new 24 x 36 In. hand pulled silk screen print of the artist’s work exclusively for the opening.
We turned an original work that the artist created on paper into a beautiful large scale screen print. Each print is hand signed, numbered by the artist and are available online for order now.
