Peru-born Chris Dyer has turned recycling old skateboards from a hobby into a full time job. The artist says his aim is to project a positive, spiritual nature through his art. Dyer's brightly colored, visionary designs began with painting short broken decks, and have evolved into larger sculptures including a piece made from over 65 broken boards.

The well-traveled Chris Dyer (who is now based out of Montreal, Canada) has certainly infiltrated the skateboard industry with his mystical and innovative skateboard art.
