One of the Tilt Mode Army’s finest.  Ex-Maple am during the Black Cat era. Former Santa Cruz team manager as well as film maker of the Guarte video. Master ramp builder as well as digger of giant holes, Big Jesse Erickson. Now has ‘bad-ass rebartist’ to add to his credits. Yeah, he’s rebarted; he makes art from bending and welding reinforcing steel bars. He started messing around with the idea a few years ago, and has gone ballistic making huge art pieces of shit, middle fingers, as well as toilets from bent rebar.

He’s quickly mastered his craft and so it was fitting he have one of the first art shows in the newly opened Seeing Things Gallery in San Jose, California. The space was filled with his rebar outlined pieces that cover some interesting subject matters. From owls, swear words, upside-down crosses as well as dream catchers. Many of the area’s finest art appreciating-skaters like Louie Barletta, Jose Rojo, Daryl Angel, Peter Raffin, and also Jason Adams were in attendance. Most of the rebart is pretty big. Furthermore if you look close it’s easy to appreciate the small details in the work. Jesse has always excelled in everything he does, and we’re glad he decided to be a rebartist. Now go watch Jesse’s part from Man Down then go buy his art before he gets too famous.–Erik Olsen
