This skateboard painting was inspired by the original movie Rollerball. It is in response to the idea that corporations take over governance of the people after the governments have gone bankrupt. The basic premise of the movie was that individuals did not matter and that the spectacle of sports was a mechanism used by corporations to control the masses much like the Colosseum in Rome or the modern day football stadiums. The character 'Jonathan E' was the antagonist to the corporate paradigm.

Nitty Gritty Skateboard
Here is my latest skateboard called Nitty Gritty. It's meant to represent well-worn tools that have fulfilled their purposes over the years. It also portrays a grungy urbanism reminiscent of the early industrial revolution - at a time when an old walk-up on the Lower East Side of New York reflected the character and determination of the human spirit.
2017 is starting off nicely with a few new BermanBoard Extreme Sport Board (X-Board) designs featuring some of my recent artwork. My boards can be outfitted with trucks and ridden or hung on a wall like fine art using my patented skateboard bracket I call the Deck Dock.
To the right you'll see a crazy skateboard arrangement I did for a show in Calistoga, CA. last year. People loved it and I showed both my printed and painted skateboards.
BTW - you can see one of my Deck Dock brackets on the box to to the lower right of the photo.
Deck Dock® skateboard brackets are designed to give the owner the greatest variety of options to display and store their extreme sports boards.
