Destroyed by fire; Skeleton of West Pier, Brighton. “Inspired skating under the pier I began creating art as Destructo”
To introduce myself properly and let people know why Destructo Trucks is different:
“Born In England, Raised in the USA”
My name is Gary Parkin. “Destructo” is my artist name and tag. I started creating work asDestructo when I still lived in England. I moved to California in 1995 to skate and experience the California adventure. I founded Destructo Trucks in 1996 based on my love of skateboarding, art, and engineering. I’m passionate about art and skateboarding and the positive life changes they can make. Everything you have ever seen Destructo I have created. It remains my ongoing art project. Skater/Artist owned since ’96 ~ I’m lucky to share my project and connect with awesome people all around the world.
