Riviera Board Designs by Ty Williams:
Ty Williams’s Homepage:
Years in the game? I am 26 but am not sure if I’m in the game yet?
In your opinion, the most influential or culturally significant artist(s) of the last 75 years? Hall and Oates
Oil, acrylic, aerosols, ink, lead? Acrylic, old papers, and glue.
Do you ride a skateboard? If so, for how long? I do ride a skateboard, and I have been pushing around since I was 11. My first board was a New DEAL and I used to just bomb my parents driveway and drag my tail on the ground thinking it was a flashy new trick, it wasn’t long before I ruined my board.
Do you ride a surfboard? If so, for how long? I primarily surf and have been in the water since I was 11.
How did your involvement with Riviera Skateboards develop? Justin Reynolds all the way!!! An amazing skateboarder, inspiring friend and wonderful father, he hit me up and asked me to do a board.
If you had to choose between starring on a reality TV show or being married to a reality TV show star, which would you choose? Why? I guess I would want to star on the show since being married right now seems a bit intense since I can barely pay my rent.
Budweiser, Dos Equis, Corona, Stella, Pabst? Yes please, I’ll take a sampler.
What’s on the horizon with your art? I have been working on a book that is a little bit of a retrospective of my work over the past 4 years. I’m always making work and since my A.D.H.D isn’t going anywhere, I assume I will stay busy.
