Canvas: Poison Delux


cv22
THRASHER HAS ALWAYS spotlighted skater art, in ways big and small. The mag's Canvas department has been a showcase for art made by skaters for the past four decades. It has included creative legends, talented doodlers, and perhaps even a friend or two of yours. We will now be featuring these same Canvas artists on the website. Here is the latest spread from the December 2019 issue. To submit your own Canvas, click here.

THERE ARE two types of photoreceptors in the human retina: rods and cones. Rods are responsible for vision at low-light levels. Cones are active at higher-light levels and are capable of color vision. I’m convinced Poison Delux was born with an overabundance of cones in his eyes. He sees color wavelengths that us mere mortals can’t comprehend. His art radiates a gradient heat as he tries to show you the tones of his world. Not much is known about Poison Delux other than that he resides in Quebec. He explores strange phantasmagoria by exorcising, through his art, the creatures and symbols that haunt his mind. —Pierre Lafuente
