Wow, I JUST noticed the K2 graphics...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Call me slow, but I just realized that this year's K2 twin-tip graphics are all tributes to artists:

AK Enemy - Leonardo da Vinci (anatomical diagrams)
Seth - Salvador Dali ("Sleep", "Temptation of St. Anthony", "Persistence of Memory")
Nancy - ?
Public Enemy - M.C. Escher ("Relativity", "House of Stairs")
MissDemeanor - Toulouse-Lautrec ("Jane Avril", "Moulin Rouge")
Fujative - Picasso during his Cubist period?
Silencer - Warhol?
Juvy - Van Gogh ("Starry Night", his ear)

Anybody wanna confirm or fill in the blanks?

This also means that I MUST pick up a pair of the Seths as my life is completed by Dali.

Yeah, its was a very cool idea. Ryan Schmies over at K2 is the mang when it comes to ski graphics.

IMHO the Silencer is more Banksy than Warhol...

The PE is one of my favourite ski graphics though... changes over the years but it's always pretty good.

Even though Banksy's stenciled-grafitti look is indeed very close, WK Interact is probably closer with actual weapons. That said, I think Schmies was trying to go for the big-name, easily-recognizable artists that won't leave people w/o an active interest in art scratching their heads (yeah yeah, even Warhol is iffy for some people... but less so than, say... Mondrian... or as recent and urban as Banksy/WK Interact).

Personally, I think Bosch or even some of the current pop-surrealist stuff would be be great on boards and planks.

Is everyone drawing a total blank for the Nancy?

No idea on the Nancy...

also, re: above, I did include a Wikilink for a reason...
