Year: 2007 - present
Mark Gonzales is known as a skateboarder first, but his impact as an artist has been just as notable. He did his own graphics starting back when he skated for Vision in the '80s, then Blind in the '90s, and eventually for his own company, Krooked, which he started in 2002. He is widely recognized as the most influential street skater ever—in 2011 Transworld went so far as to dub him the most influential skateboarder ever, period—and even at 45 he still drops the occasional video part. His affiliation with Supreme has been long and prolific, and continues today. GONS' imagery is utilized on many pieces (sometimes with his intentional mispelling of the name: "SUPREAM"), and even made an appearance in "cherry," Supreme's recently released skate video.
