Descended from a line of acclaimed artists, Dave “Persue” Ross continues family tradition and is recognized by his colleagues and peers as a true artistic pioneer. In the late 80’s, Persue (pronounced ‘per-SWAY’), found himself irresistibly drawn to the world of graffiti.
With an energetic, illustrative style, his technical ability and poise as a young writer quickly earned him the respect of his contemporaries throughout the world. Between 1991 and 2010, Persue transcended boundaries both on and off the street by bridging the gap between underground and mainstream culture in the skateboarding industry. With an impressive design resume that pre-dates almost any example of street aesthetics being paired with skateboarding, his influence is woven seamelessly into the fabric of modern day youth culture.
Widely recognized as a legend in the street culture, Persue puts together graffiti elements with New Pop imaginary in an illustrative and energetic style giving birth to an exclusive aesthetic approach to Urban ArtAP
