LEON BESTER INTERVIEW

Leon Bester

Leon Bester is one of the nicest guys you might ever meet. A local Cape Town boy, Leon has been active in skateboarding, art, photography and videography for a while now, and owns at both. Find out more about the man behind the wayfarers. We introduce you to Leon Bester…

Take us through a day in the life of Leon Bester.

Alarm goes off, snooze button, snooze button, snooze button. This goes on for quit a while. Then I’ll start my day with a nice cup of tea, check on my plants and water them. Next I’ll jump into some denims and depending on the weather I’ll cycle down to the Woodstock Exchange to take care of business. If I leave before sunset I’ll go for a little skate, maybe a cheeky beer after. Then it’s dinner time and chill time.

Who/what inspires/influences you to do art?

There are endless things that will inspire me or spark a new thought or idea. I love to gather inspiration from all over and from many different things, situations and artists.

What sparked your interest in screen printing?

When I started my course in Graphic Design at Cape Tech, I was always fascinated in printmaking and I knew screen printing was part of our course, but only from second year. After my first year they pretty much scratched screen printing from our course, so when the time came to go and do an internship, I decided to intern at ilovescreenprinting. After the two week internship I was hooked on this new skill I’ve learned. I pretty much built a DIY set-up and bought a few screens and just carried on printing. For the whole of 2012 I ran my own screen printing studio in the northern suburbs. I mostly printed t-shirts, but my favourite is to print onto wood. I don’t print as much anymore, but it’s always fun to go mess around in the studio and make some t-shirts or print some artwork, get covered in paint, etc.

What are some of your favorite projects that you’ve worked on?

I am really amped on all of the adidas projects I have been involved with. The most recent being the PE (Port Elizabeth) skate trip and the Gonz Exhibition. Always good fun and interesting trips. Another one stands out; about 2 months ago, Toby from ‘Hello Again’ in long street asked myself and Inus Smuts to do some t-shirt designs for his shop. I did a photo series on well known streets and landmarks of Cape Town, but from a first person view on a bicycle. I pretty much looked like crazy tourist cycling in the middle of the streets through town with my camera dangling from my neck while shooting the photos, haha. But I am really happy with the way it came out in the end. Risked my life a few times to get those shots, haha.

What are you listening to right now?

Yeasayer, Tame Impala, Neil Young, Future Island and some Witch.

What is this ‘Streets’ gang you’re part of? Does your Mom know about it?

Hahaha! Streets is pretty much a bunch of homies that love to skate, travel, braai, hang out, smash some beers and cause all sorts of shit together. Yeah, we are a diverse group of people that just started skating together in the school years and we still skate, hang out and make missions together as much as we can.

streets-design-clock-screen-printed‘Streets’ design clock. Screen printed.

You were a videographer on the recent adidas skateboarding trip to PE. Care to share any stories from the trip?

There are so many good stories from that trip. Like when we had to saw off this piece of railing to make a handrail skateable. Or Jansen swinging and smashing everything in his way with the one golf club we had with us. Khulu falling over into the bath tub. Pieter giving Jansen a tomato relish shower. Yann shredding that bowl by the park. I can go on and on. There are so many.

Where are you at in skateboarding at the moment? Are you still pushing as hard as you always were?

At the moment I am just enjoying skateboarding for what it is to me. Sometimes I would just hang out with everybody and have a mellow session. Then other times I would find myself jumping or grinding stuff I would never even have looked at before.

What are your favorite things about South Africa?

Definitely all the amazing destinations to travel to and all them characters you meet along the way.

Shout outs?

My family for supporting and helping me out since forever. All of my friends for being unique characters. The streets homies, everybody I skate with, people I make art with, Inus Smuts for the daily entertainment, adidas, revolution, the woodstock studio mates and friends, the Pit, everybody that has helped me out on my travels… so many people to thank. All of you play a unique role, so thanks.

GONZ EXHIBITION

Gonz_15Year_OnlineFlyer_Final

If you’re in Joburg, get down to Area3 for the Gonz exhibition.

It opened on Saturday and runs until 31 July.

NATAS INTERVIEWS GONZ

Legendary skateboarder Natas Kaupas interviews The Gonz (Mark Gonzales) about his 15 years with adidas, along with some other things. Looks like such a rad exhibition.

15 YEARS OF GONZ AND ADIDAS COLLECTION

adidas-Gonz15Year-Phillips-Profile

15 years is a long time. Mark Gonzales has been a member of the adidas Skateboarding family inspiring, developing and nurturing the skateboarding program for 15 years. To honour this occasion a special collection of footwear and apparel, inspired and created by Gonz’s illustrations and creative mojo has been launched.

GONZ PRO:
The first ever adidas Skateboarding Gonz Pro model features a moulded sock liner, an extra set of laces, the Gonz’ tread pattern and the special blue, red and white design. “The colour inspiration behind the special collection Gonz Pro was to make it red, white and blue and then heavy on the black – much like the wardrobe of the 1700’s of France, like Louis the XIV.” – Mark Gonzales. It’s up to you whether you believe the inspiration it or not…

GONZ SLIP:
Design inspiration for the new Gonz Slip-on came from spending a week in Paris with the man himself. Comfortable, easy-to-wear and made for skateboarding, Gonz’ new shoe features a moulded sock liner and a Gonz designed tread pattern.

GONZ STRIPED OXFORD SHIRT:
This long-sleeve Oxford-style shirt features horizontal yarn-dyed stripes selected by Gonz himself.

GONZ QUILTED JACKET:
Inspired by Gonz’s fascination with Italian rifle jackets, this quilted winter-ready jacket is fully-lined, has corduroy trims and a DWR finish.

GONZ HOODIE:
Made with a colored mélange body and stripes with solid sleeves, this cardigan-inspired hoodie achieves Gonz’s request for a “cool Yale Sweater” and features the Gonz 15-year crest on the left chest and applied 3-Stripes on the sleeves.

adidas-Gonz15Year-Phillips-LayDown

GONZ STRETCH CHINO PANT:
With a design brief to “have enough stretch to kill it skating the streets of Paris” and detailed with custom Gonz trims these chinos not disappoint.

GONZ TRACK TOP:
Mark’s favourite piece is inspired by the classic adidas track top. Built for skating with sweat-wicking climalite® French terry fabric, it blends an iconic silhouette with a contemporary execution.

GONZ POCKET TEE:
Gonz drew a pocket into his artwork, so we made it exactly that way. The graphic is printed on top of the attached pocket making it a truly unique piece of art.

GONZ SKATE KAT TEE:
Showing off Gonz’s original ‘Skate Kat’ graphic in a waterbased screenprint, this tee features custom trims for the full Gonz treatment.

GONZ RAMBLE TEE:
Brand new artwork by the Gonz inspired by the by the opulence of historical French dandyism. It shows off his epic signature and features custom Gonz neck tape and labels.

This collection is tied together with a GONZ SNAP BACK HAT, GONZ CAP & GONZ SOCKS.

adidas-Gonz15Year-Phillips-LongSkate

This special 15 Years of Gonz & adidas collection compliments the comprehensive FW13 collection, which is also available. For more information check out the full collection at adidasskateboarding.com
