For the video supplement to the latest installment in our Curated by Arkitip series, C. R. Stecyk III took director Felipe Lima on a tour of his favorite decommissioned U.S. highway, Route 66. From beneath the Santa Monica Pier, just blocks from the infamous roadway’s Pacific dead end, they traveled over 200 miles to the Amboy Salt Flats. Along the way, they paid their respects to the local landmarks Stecyk has watched decay over the last forty years. From the McDonald brothers’ first hamburger stand in San Bernadino through the Oz-like ruins of abandoned houses and cars near Baghdad, they traced the skeletal remains of what was once a strong spine of commerce into the Mojave.
The two then visited the Colby Poster Printing Company in downtown Los Angeles. Family owned and operated for three generations, the Stecyks printed with the Colbys before there was a third C. R. They documented the printing process behind a series of posters to commemorate Stecyk’s new Incase products. The posters will be made available exclusively through Incase and Arkitip’s Project Space in Hollywood.
Incase not only relishes the opportunity to design products with artists like C. R. Stecyk III, but to document that creative process, as well.
The seventh installment of Curated by Arkitip is now available, featuring works by multimedia artist C.R. Stecyk III. From his early work on boards he painted for the Z-Boys to his iconic black and white photography of surf and skate legends, Stecyk is widely acknowledged as a major stylistic influence within graffiti and street art movements.
Stecyk’s work for Curated by Arkitip highlights iconic imagery and color combinations representative of the early days of modern skate and surf culture. The 15″ MacBook Pro Sleeve features an early Stecyk photograph of Jay Adams, one of the original Z-Boys considered a progenitor of modern-day skateboarding. Stecyk’s skull design for the iPhone 3GS Snap Case recalls graffiti art that typified skateboarding in its early days, such as Stecyk’s infamous Pig and Crossbones graffiti piece that became a symbol for the nascent culture’s attitude and style.
In celebration of the release of the Stecyk series, Incase and Arkitip have worked with C.R. Stecyk to produce a limited-edition of 100 signed screen prints of the skull design featured on the iPhone 3GS Snap Case. The prints are available exclusively through Arkitip and at Project Space in Los Angeles located at 603 N. La Brea Avenue.
C.R. Stecyk III brings his mixed media artistry to the signature Incase 15″ Sleeve and iPhone 3GS Snap Case. Employing photography, graffiti and screen printing techniques, the C.R. Stecyk III products for Curated by Arkitip feature iconic imagery and colorways representative of early surf and skate culture.
The 15″ C.R. Stecyk III Sleeve and iPhone 3GS Snap Cases will be available on August 17.
