California artist Serena Mitnik-Miller will be customizing the Vans gear at our San Francisco stop. Check out some of her custom Vans in progress for the event. Plus, follow her online for more artwork at the links below.
Serena Mitnik-Miller is an artist and designer working in California. She splits her time between San Francisco and Los Angeles, combining her days painting, designing, collecting, and collaborating with her local artisan community. Serena’s paintings are created by hand using watercolor pigment on paper. The compositions are fashioned by interconnecting patterns of color and concentric shapes where structures break apart, bubbles stack, and pyramids multiply. Each painting must strike a balance between layers of color, repetitive contour lines, and the inherent qualities of all the materials she employs. Her artwork usually begins with an impression from the natural environment, where proximity to the ocean and coastal habitats, often become symbolic permanent points of reference.
She'll also be customizing Vans shoes & other gear at our Classic & San Francisco event so we thought it might be best to get her thoughts on the city. Click read more below for her hometown Q&A.
Cool Ghouls are.... really really cool. Just take a listen to their self titled album below. We know you'll agree.
