Mike Giant’s art is found on skateboards, walls, t-shirts, and even skin. Although found in different forms and venues, his signature black & white style holds true to the sense of urban surrealism often linked to the skateboard, tattoo and graffiti culture, while still being recognizably unique. Mike Giant’s art has been displayed in galleries from San Francisco, where he resides, to Los Angeles, Spain and Australia. He has also launched his own clothing line, Rebel 8, which highlights his work on everything from tees to hats.

Huck and Fully Visual have joined forces again on a new metal project. This time around comes the classic Skullhead in four editions -- gold(25 pcs), antique silver(25 pcs), antique copper(25 pcs) and antique brass(25 pcs). They drop tomorrow Tuesday, 9.29.09 @ 11 AM PDT in the Fully Visual store for $130 each. These pieces are large -- for comparison's sake, they are about three times larger than the first modernized Skullhead metal figure from Fully Visual, almost a pound and as big as a baseball.
Just wanted to give the readers of this blog a heads up on a new project myself and the AS crew has been working on called "TheLegacyStudios.com"(a WIP). TLS.com is a new lifestyle website that will revolve around things that interest myself and those around me. It will also be the new home base for future releases as well as collaborative projects that we plan on doing with your favorite artist of all industries... be it urban art, toys, music, photography, etc. etc... if it's of any interest to us then you'll be able to find it on TLS.com. So be sure to check out the new website when you have a chance.
Oh and dont't worry... I'll be sure to keep www.alwaysseen.com updated. I'm a designer toy and urban art fan at heart so I'll always make sure to stay on top of this blog. Thanks again for the continued support, it's very much appreciated!!!
