Rise back up. Show them who you are.
To celebrate 20 years of vinyl storytelling, we are proud to present Flake – Pain, an anniversary edition of the iconic skateboarder that marked coarse’s beginning in 2003.
The original bust was hand-sculpted by Mark Landwehr two decades ago and was never sold or released, remaining an original sculpture in the coarse vault. This Pain edition is a replica of that original handmade bust, re-sculpted with new techniques. Despite the red splashes of blood on Flake's face and chest, a formidable grin creeps across his face. Nothing can keep him down.
Each order contains one monochrome vinyl Flake bust, bloody from trying to get through another day. He will arrive in a color-printed gift box an embedded in black sponge. One Family & Friends application card is included with every bust.
This sculpture represents one of the most important moments in coarse’s history and two decades later its meaning still resonates with us. Life will always find a way to knock you down. So be ready to fall. But be made to rise up.
