Thanks to Fuel TV and Clayton Brothers for the video.
The Pasadena-based Rob and Christian Clayton, otherwise known as the Clayton Brothers, are known for producing dynamic, extemporaneous, yet purposeful paintings. The Clayton Brother’s work is inspired by the ethereal sublime, and searching for that moment of calmness. Their images speak to all through a universal, visual vernacular borrowed from folklore, mythology, urban legend, sound bytes and info-graphics.
“A lot of our work addresses the feeling of ‘bliss,’ and the moment when everything seems perfectly sound,” says Rob. The Clayton Brother’s recollections of the past are revealed as slightly tainted yet sublime memories. They believe the world of action sports and art are analogous to each other in a way that it takes extreme creativity and intuitiveness for the athletes to do what they do.
“The Signature Series is refreshing because art and action sports have always gone hand-in-hand,” says Christian. “Art is one element that separates action sports from other mainstream sports. As youngsters, we were passionate about skateboarding, BMX, and punk rock.”
