When Brian Lotti isn’t skating he’s utilizing his skills as a classically trained painter. Permanent stockist Atlas Skate Shop in San Mateo, California recently cultivated a series of boards with Brian’s art on the business end of them; enjoy this video of the process!

The internet has been ablaze with Brian Lotti’s Blue Line video piece. Blue Line was created by Brian Lotti and Nathan Factor Sacharow, featuring music by badmammal. It is a short concept film exploring various ways of tracking and shooting skateboarders moving through the landscape. Skateboarders include David Bowens, Cooper Wilt, Derek Fukuhara, Adrian Adrid, Ronnie Sandoval, Riley Stevens, and Robbie Russo. We should also mention that the Lotti’s Choice pro model wheels are available now…
We thought this was a pretty interesting project. Sanctioned or not, we are fans of spoken word jams and of course fans of mister Brian Lotti. Combine the two together and you have audible art. Thank you, skateboarding.
Here’s the description from weirdcanada.com: “Teenage skate-vid ephemera (see “Brian Lotti,” narrated by the legend himself) intersects with finger-picked guitar cascades” via the musical vittles of Ken Reaume aka Black Walls. If you like it, purchase the album from Pleasence Records. Even better, purchase Brian’s upcoming pro model wheel.
