Chris Dyer

Its about time we got some skateboard art on our beer bottles. Introducing the totally unique and complex art of Series Fours Chris Dyer – not just in mediums, but in visionary manifestations, too. Through his art, Chris hopes to manifest the spiritual Onenessthat exists in us all.

Chris Dyer looking up for no reason

Chris grew up in Lima, Peru until the age of 17, where he was involved and heavily interested in 80s skateboard culture, 90s surf culture and soccer. He would often draw on his own skateboard as a child. He eventually moved to Canada to study art for several years. He’s now based in Montreal with his wife, Valerie, where he works as a freelance artist. Seems as though his family has been #blessed by the art gods – his brother, Peru, is also a well-known Toronto street artist who has appeared on our labels and was also one of the artists who did a mural for our new retail store.

Chris is widely recognized as the artist who does colourful detailed spiritual expressions on recycled skateboards. But he’s also very active in the street art scene, spray painting murals worldwide. His canvas paintings expressing soulfulness are highly coveted, too, having been exhibited in solo and group shows in several galleries around the world, including San Francisco, New York, Mexico, Peru, Belgium, Paris, and all over Canada and the United States.

Other than his detailed fine art, Chris also is art director for California’s Creation Skateboards. He designs the graphics for them and many other skateboard companies. He also dabbles in other commercial work like CD covers, T-shirts, magazine illustrations and advertisements.

Chris has been featured in many magazines and books worldwide, including his own hardcover coffee table book published by Pennsylvania’s Schiffer Books in 2011. A colouring book for adults is due to be released later this year. He’s also got a full feature documentary of his life and art. Totally recommended watching and reading.

For more on Chris, follow his fan page on Facebook and check him out on Twitter and Instagram. He’s also got a blog that is chock full of his work. Right on.
