First Look at K2’s Artist Collaboration with Whaffle
Cruising through the intersection of East Coast and West Coast, somewhere between the mountains and the city, Thomas Johnson, Global Marketing Manager for PSIA-AASI Official Supplier K2 Snowboard, met Whaffle.
Born and bred in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Tashawn “Whaffle” Davis is a young artist inspired by both the novelty of New York City and the nostalgia of its past. He believes that the 70’s were a time when both style and politics seemed to be welded together, and self-expression was globally ubiquitous.
“Embodying culture of New York in the 70’s is a lifestyle for Whaffle,” said Thomas. “From his true vintage garb to the wood paneling, shag carpets, and sepia hues of his astonishingly preserved mid-century apartment, simply being around him is enough to feel transported to another era.”
