Inspired by skateboarding culture throughout his childhood, Hayashi remarks, “Santa Cruz’s endless archive of awesome skateboard graphics, logos, and fonts that defined the 80’s skateboarding scene left a huge impact on me as an emerging artist and a skater. I really looked up to their style and artists like Jim Phillips, whose signature artwork continues to inspire me to this day.” This collection marks Taka Hayashi’s first-ever Vans Pro Skate project, following the release of his 18th season of Vault by Vans designs this past September.
