Skating since 1989, Todd Bratrud is responsible for a slew of fresh skate decks and related art projects. As the second title in the Seen Unknown series from Mark Batty Publisher, The Art of Todd Bratrud collects some of the most memorable high-points in a varied career. Boards from Consolidated and Enjoi mix with Nike Dunk make-ups (Send Help and High Hair, for example), proving the breadth of Bratrud's talents. The aesthetic is distinct and there is undoubted power to each and every graphic.
The book is edited by Winston Tseng, art director of Enjoi Skateboards.
