Sky Walker's Story: Sky Walker was born in Big Bear, California in 1978. His parents, Morris and Lynn Walker were musicians, entertainers, and artists. The Walker family, including Skye's younger sister Amoris, moved all over the country from California to Nevada to Hawaii to Colorado to Oregon. His parents enjoyed travel and adventure and experiencing new places with the kids as well as encouraging their interest in the arts. After receiving a BFA in Graphic Design in 2001 from Oregon State University, he packed his bags and surfboard and moved back to Southern California and headed straight to Encinitas. During his professional career as an artist and designed he's worked in-house and on contract basis for companies such as: Rip Curl, Redsand, prAna, Dragon, Nike, Liquid Force, UCLA Athletics, and more. In 2011 Whole Foods contacted Skye about doing murals for their new Encinitas store, needless to say, he was elated and it kick-started his passion for murals and large format art installations again, having painted dozens of murals in high school and college. Murals have become Skye's main point of focus with his art for the past 10 years and isn't slowing down. While he does a lot of commercial murals for companies, Skye's own artistic vision for murals revolves around mother nature, and our environments and really bringing attention to our natural surroundings and how they connect to us as humans in every way possible. Murals are a great way to inspire, educate, and elevate the visual aesthetics of a community. "While I love painting on a small scale, creating murals that are larger-than-life for the public to see in a daily basis is my favorite form of art. To think as many people may see a mural I've done and maybe, one of those people or kids will be inspired by it is a driving force for me to create. I'm constantly reinventing my style and the environment and mother nature are always inspiring me to push my work to be better every day.
Chris Benchetler's Story: For Chris Benchetler of Mammoth Lakes, CA, skiing has always held a close relation to art as witnessed in the way he sees the mountain and uses hi creativity to draw lines down a blank mountain canvas. In 08/09 his ski sponsor, Atomic, saw hi creativity and offered him the opportunity to design his first pair of pro model skis 0 The Bent Chetler - now 10 years later he has been able to explore a whole new side of his career, one rooted in artistic creativity. Diving into creating the graphics for top sheets, in addition to other signature items for various sponsors, has taught him new mediums and skills to apply his artwork... blending line drawing, spray paints, acrylics, oils, and digital painting. "I don't have a particular medium that I work in, but I think I do the best work with pen-line drawings - so I went that route with my first ski graphic. I also needed to learn illustrator and Photoshop and the process is still going on today and remains very consuming because digital is very different from drawing something on a piece of paper or on wood or on a wall. As the years have progressed, I've taught myself more and more about different mediums, and digital painting."
