Pop-inspired Art as Visual Chatter
Tanner Goldbeck is an inspiration. For years he has been a permanent component of our team and turns our helmets into real art masterpieces.

Tanner Goldbeck was born in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, but has been residing in Los Angeles, California, for years. He studied at Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey, and soon after found fame from his graphics and paintings inspired by pop culture imagery. Playfully and by celebrating a wild artistic freedom, he dismantles these images and abstracts them into new organic constructs. He describes the results as a form of visual chatter, “a feeling not unlike entering a room full of people all talking at once.”
a tactile tête-à-tête between control and spontaneity
Tanner calls his work process “a tactile tête-à-tête between control and spontaneity”. Doesn’t this remind you of skateboarding or BMX? No wonder his work complements our helmets!
