Element presents the Guardians collection, an Element Perspective Project with artist Patrick Schmidt.
Finding inspiration from wise old owls to worn out signs and with a love for painting on big walls when not making giant roquefort burgers, Patrick Schmidt has created “The Guardians” collection. Inspired by traditional woven Tibetan Tiger rugs, thought to provide the user protection when meditating, Patrick interpreted the Element riders’ individual spiritual animals. Nick Garcia’s coyote, Brandon Westgate’s bobcat and Julian Davidson’s snake become a colourful and uniquely illustrated animal rug, all of which are laid on a series of 3 skateboard decks and tee shirts.
The “Guardians” collection by Patrick Schmidt is now available online at elementbrand.com as part of the Element Perspective project.
