Rich Arbitelle

Loft: E126


Rich Arbitelle has expanded his early work in graffiti and pencil drawings to include paintings, ink drawings, apparel/skateboard graphic design, art boards, muscle car designs and photography. Inspired by his upbringing in ’90s New York City as a skateboarder (he was featured in Larry Clark’s 1995 cult classic Kids and co-owned the skate company Brooklyn Boards), Rich takes aspects of urban grittiness and blends them with renderings of the natural and spirit worlds, incorporating his Native American roots into his vision. His aesthetic is distinguished by intricate line work, haunting portraiture, and urban calligraphy. Visit www.richarbitelle.com.
