C.R. Stecyk III LA 2018

Native Angeleno C.R. Stecyk III is a multimedia artist widely acknowledged as a major influence within the genres of graffiti and street art. Stecyk was involved with the founding of the Zephyr surf shop in Santa Monica, California, where the boards he painted helped to establish the graphic styles of both surfing and skateboarding. A surfboard shaped and painted by Stecyk resides in the permanent archive of the Smithsonian. Other boards were presented at MoMA in New York, the White House in Washington, D.C. and the Olympic Village in Rio de Janeiro. He created numerous iconic symbols of surfing and skateboarding, such as the Lance Mountain skull logo, the “Vato Rat,” the Dogtown cross, and the “Skate and Destroy” marks. He was a writer and production designer on the Sundance award-winning documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys and is one of the founders of Juxtapoz magazine. Stecyk has written and photographed extensively on the topics of art, surfing, skateboarding, custom car culture, and obscure California history.

The artist’s BEYOND THE STREETS installation is related to his practice of surreptitiously placing poster pieces in out-of-context environments, a format chosen as homage to common trade advertisements and deliberately designed at 14” x 22” — the industry-standard “show card” size. The assemblage is site specific and Stecyk will continuously create mixed-media monoprints and incorporate them throughout the run of the exhibition. The rusted aerosol-can artifacts are from C.R.’s back stock of paint; hundreds of cans from this archive were employed in the formulation of colors for these works. Stecyk relates that the most obscure chromatic sources utilized were 1935 Dupont Duco Nitrocellulose automotive lacquer and paint from the old Sixth Street Bridge.
