Teaming up with artist Monica Kim Garza, 5Boro channel some serious tropical vibes for their latest deck series dubbed ‘Caliente’
Raised in Atlanta and eventually moving to Brooklyn, NY, Garza draws inspiration from her Korean-Mexican decent, informing her various artworks which include paintings, drawings, ceramics and collages. Having delivered two solid Deck series releases already this year in the ‘VHS’ series and ‘Airline’ series with Stefan Marx, 5Boro now look to Monica Kim Garza to bring her unique hand painted approach to boards and a small selection of apparel. The ‘exotically erotic’ designs focus around a voluptuous figure enjoying the sun, sea and sand, juxtaposed with a distinctively New York City inspired background.
You can pick up the 5Boro NYC x Monica Kim Garza ‘Caliente’ Series now at www.5boronyc.com. I haven’t found any solid confirmation on a UK release just yet, but as soon as I do I’ll keep you posted!
