Lakai‘s contributing artist program has given a platform to some outstanding artists, and the latest continues in that tradition. David Flores, a designer/muralist/painter, who has worked extensively in skateboarding for many years, creating literally hundreds of graphics for several brands such as Shortys and Deluxe. Flores has also extended his work beyond skateboarding and established an amazing fine art career, creating distinctive murals and showing in galleries all over the world.
