“Works of Andres Chaparro bear a remarkable insight into a cultural phenom from 1950's and 60's Expressionist traditions. The phenom, which grew out of historical revelations called Afro-Latino, date back centuries untold yet define his artistic and cultural qualities today. These powerful roots spring-forth across Andres canvas like musical notes of color and theme. From deep within a strong spiritual inner nature Andres Jazz music themes and expressive Liberada Color Schemes inspire audiences with visions of worlds unseen while exploding in his presentation. It is obvious Andres Chaparro will continue to tell a rhythmic cultural story as this new century unfolds. His art will always be contemporary.”
(Note: Liberada Color Schemes Red, Black, & Green represent world-wide liberation color used in many Third World Liberation Movements)

Remember when skateboards used to be worth saving...
The problem with skateboarding these days is, that it is driven by bottomline marketing which mandates if kids want blood, skulls and heart-a-grams, than give it to them. But whatever happened to the times when graphic designers and artists creatively fused social, political, personal and ironic meanings into their skateboard art? Even World did some random funny/ terrible things in the early 90's. What Worship Skateboards hopes to offer is an alternative to the current graphic lull. As most companies guard their image that they have spent tons of money developing, we would rather offer change. Every series is artist driven or fueled by hidden meanings. Our focus at Worship Skateboards is to achieve an artistic aesthetic that offers the individual the opportunity to find a more personal attachment to skateboard art wether they choose to hang the board on their wall or skate it. Just like all the decks we saved when we were their age...back when graphics meant something.
