Phone calls between me and Lukas Goller during this past winter would almost always start off like that.
Argentera is a small village counting 93 residents, near Cuneo. Lukas got so much into it he spent most of the last filming season there, as he was shooting for Random Video.
In the photo above, taken by Denis Piccolo and published on Sequence Snowboarding #25, we can peep a little preview of what’s gonna show next season.
On Entry snowboard magazine #31 you can read a nice interview of Lukas Goller. For once, snowboarding gets left apart in order to explore his artistic attitude.
First of all Lukas is a free minded person who tries to express himself through ways he likes. In fact this three pages interview is more about his way of seeing art than about snowboarding.
Lukas collaborated to the designing of the outerwear for next winter introducing notable innovations. He’s also the author of the “Lubert” graphic, shown here below, for the next bastard collection, Fw 2010, in stores in September.
This photograph portrays Lukas Goller under the chairlift in Val Senales, Italy. When I looked at the picture for the first time I immediately fell in love for it. Evidently was appreciated as much overseas, to the point that it got featured on a double spread in the wallpaper section, Transworld Snowboarding December issue.
For those who might not know the photographer Matt Georges, he’s a French dude based in Grenoble, who usually brings an innovative perspective on action shots, always focusing on the environment rather than obsessing on the trick itself. Check his personal page on Onboard for a deeper look.
Fortyeight pages that offer an inside look on the things we did in the last six months and the people we collaborated with for making the clothes we’re wearing this winter, JAMMIN’ e ARTISTUFF in particular.
In the Art area of freestyle.ch it has just been published an interview with Lukas Goller. Starting 2009 he put his contribution to the bastard snowboard project.
The itw is in german language but you can see a selection of his works (the one above is for Milano Centrale skateboards)… I can’t understand what is written but I can follow the only link written and I remember Lukas often talks about this: Trailer Park Boys.
Man, we make it safe! It was not easy at all, special for the Grill and the party, but the week end in Val Senales was great…
Saturday morning Supersession at the big Jump and Ignorant Session at the pool, check the gallery below. In the afternoon we grll and dink the all day at the skatepark. Nikolai Danov and Marco Lambertucci were skating and we were playing ignogolf!
The night was too cold for party outside, so we moved to the Leon’s pub and the party went crazy (as usual over there).
Thanks to Gentlemen Riders, Alex Fakieshop, all the riders, drinkers and party animals! It’s always good to spend a couple of days there, they are champions in “happiness”!
