ART • RIDE • ROCK
While our focus is primarily on skateboards at this point, Squad19 is a hub of collaborative creativity founded by Steve Tenebrini, a Minneapolis based graphic artist and illustrator. Working with creatives from around the country, Squad19 has produced 100s of screen-printed gigposters and art prints as well as organized a number of group gallery shows and charity events since forming in 2000. The common thread through all of this is that we are people who have a passion for art, for riding (skate/snowboards, bicycles and motorcycles) and we all have a love for the aesthetic, attitude and lifestyle of Rock-n-Roll.
Squad19 artists have included:
Aaron Purmort (RIP) / Adam Turman / Amy Jo / Brock Davis / Casey Brewer / Chuck U / Cory Tobin / DWITT / Frank Kozik / Griffin Talbot / Jamey Erickson / Jeff LaChance / Joe Morris / John Nussbaum / Justin Martinez / Lonny Unitus / Matt Pruett / Matt Schuster / Nate Nolting / Nate Williams / Peter Hajinian / Punchgut / Richie Motherfuckin' Goodtimes / Sam Soulek / Steve Tenebrini
