Arto Saari was the original warlord of the Analog/Gravis clan in skateboarding. He has since been passed, coverage wise that is, by one of the biggest skateboarders in the game right now, Dylan Rieder, but Saari is still king when it comes to the skate program over at Burton (in case you don’t know they own Analog, Gravis and Alien Workshop).
He broke onto the scene as part of the Flip skateboarders crew and has been a fixture in the skate world for more than a decade. Since then he has gotten into photography (his tree photo to the right), and has had major showings at places like the Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach, CA.
One company that has always backed his dabling in the arts is the Gravis/Analog camp. So you know Arto holds them in high regard. Sit back, relax and take a tour of what is going on over at one the fastest growing editions to the skate industry.
