Dan Kohout (Founder)
Hi, my name is Dan and I'm not only the founder and CEO of Exodus Longboard Company, but also the lead designer for this company. I've been involved with art for almost a decade: with mediums such as acrylic paint, drawing, wood engraving, and digital media. In the last 2 years, I've created over a dozen custom boards for individuals. It's a passion of mine to create unique art and empower skaters to stand out. You can read about my story and how this company first started in the link below.

Kevin Carden (Digital Artist from North Carolina)

 

My name is Kevin Carden and I have been involved with photography in some format for almost 15 years. However in the last 8 years I have really enjoyed using my photography with the combination of photoshop to create surreal and conceptual artwork. My personal faith is very important to me, and I love creating images that are both creative and display a deep meaning that gives glory to God. My wife and my children also have been a great help, and they are always willing to help with props or modeling or even coming up with new designs. Every day I am trying to come up with new projects and create artwork that has a supernatural or fantastical theme, but above all, my goal is to craft images that share the love and grace and mercy of our wonderful Creator.

Guifré Urgell Tasies (Mandala Expert from Spain)
"I started this journey ending in 2016, when I decided to start drawing, in all them ways, was what I wanted to do. I am an interior designer and a self taught illustrator. Mixing both professions is the best way for me to apply my drawing into spaces, creating nice vibes and special moods inside! I am also a tattoo apprentice, and I hope in the close future I will become a tattoo artist!
 I am specialized in geometry and mandalas, but I am always open to do whatever the custumer needs! I love to draw, design and make people happy using my art! I take a lot of time drawing and designing to reach my own style, a style which is meant to be different and unique!"

Chelsea Bork (Painter from Fort Collins) 

Chelsea has been painting since a child and went to University to become an Art Teacher.  Although her journey led her away from that specific major, her unwavering passion for art has led her on a magnificent journey. Initially influenced by music and nature, her talents continue to evolve as can be seen by the diversity in her works. This journey is depicted through her paintings which are inspired by the beauty found daily in our lives.  Her passion is in creating custom works, blending colors in ways rarely seen, and having her works transform empty walls around the world. Currently Chelsea’s works are being featured in one of the Top 150 bars of America ~ Aida Bistro and Wine Bar in Columbia, MD.  She produces commissioned custom works of all kinds on wood and canvas by request. The 2018 calendar is almost completely filled, but to the owner of an original work of art such as this, priority is given for follow up pieces. Each and every painting produced was created through passion.

Aurora Sky Art

Artist Aimy Van der Linden
Calgary, AB,  Canada
My name is Aimy,  the proud artist behind Aurora Sky Art.
I have created and been involved with art since a very young age.  Throughout school I was always taking visual arts courses to offset the pressures of education. I won various accolades including scholarships, produced murals, and continued to explore my creative expression as a form of pleasure and release. In university my heart still belonged to art as I pursued a different career path.. As an attempt to regain balance in my life, I returned to art and exploring nature to find peace and balance in my life.
Aurora Sky Art arose from my desire to always continue to have an artistic outlet and to share my passions with the world. When I am not in the mountains hiking, skiing, camping , snowboarding, dirt biking, or longboarding you will find me in my studio creating art which is inspired by my experiences in the local mountain ranges.
. The ideas behind pieces are roused by emotions, experiences, or my adventures in nature. These instances and experiences allow me to tap into my artistic self and share it with you all.
Artwork by Aurora Sky Art focuses on interpreting the beauty of nature. I aim to evoke a feeling that you have in nature rather than a copy of it. The artwork takes on an abstract, surrealist , or illustrative perspective intended to offer an escape into the mountains, night skies, sunsets, trees, lakes, etc. that give me pause and peace.
Every piece is only created when I am inspired or motivated in my soul to create it. I have a strong belief in never forcing the process and that it is meant to be organic. As a result the process becomes meditative for me.
I hope you enjoy!
XOXO
Aimy
