Lee Ralph is revered by the hardcore skateboarding community as a pioneer and icon. In the late 1980s, Ralph went on a wild journey to the States, where he became part of the Vision Skateboard team alongside street skateboarding legend Mark Gonzales.
Hailing from Rawene in the Far North, Ralph has studied Māori carving since childhood. Ralph’s carvings speak to the preservation and continuation of culture, fusing modern materials such as spray paint and enamels with traditional Māori methodologies.
