AMTK / POLAR SKATE CO.
AMTK is the combination brain of Tynan Kerr and Andie Mazorol, who live in Minneapolis, making paintings and music.
Our paintings take place in a dreamlike space, which shifts beneath us during the process of making them, as each works alongside changing, erasing and adding to what the other is doing. The paintings often involve groups of people gathering to take part in ritualistic acts with varying degrees of engagement, waiting around, looking for a task in an unclear project, or looking over their shoulders. There is a parallel between this subject matter and our strange collaborative painting relationship.
We have been friends for a really long time, working together for several years. Pushing each other, helping each other out through weird projects and times of our lives.
We have been and continue to be involved in DIY music and art spaces that mesh and overlap with todays skate culture. Having grown up in skateboarding, we were really excited to work with Pontus on designing some boards for Polar Skate Co.
