My name is Stephan. I started to skateboard in a small town in Austria called Fürstenfeld in 1995. The creativity, the coming together of art, design, hanging out with friends and strangers, exploring a city or just crusing through the streets with some music on has never left me since over these years.
That lead to the birth of Brutal Beauty in 2010 in collaboration with the artist Meapi. Over the years we put out six board designs, hundreds of T-Shirts and bags, a graphic novel, a record, put on more than a dozen of exhibitions, concerts, readings and toured Europe both with music and skateboards. Quite a ride.
These days I run Brutal Beauty on my own and collaborate with various artists along the way. The pace might have gotten slower, but the joy feels as good as ever.
Thank you for dropping by!
Dance and be kind.
