Marc Trigo Argelich A.K.A (Matdisseny) was born in Manresa (Barcelona) in 1976. Graduated in Graphic Design by the Art School of Terrassa (Barcelona) in 2003 . he was been working for serveral studios and graphic marketing departments as a grahpic designer.

After more than ten years in advertising, he decided to establish himself as freelance and explore other disciplines such as the direction and illustration without leaving the graphic design.

In The 2011 started to paint his first Skateboard. The artwork that you can see here, are a long process of experimentation from one of his hobbies during his childhood: Skateboarding culture and his life style. He works with recycled skateboards, from his skaters friends like: Andres Lopez Bayot, Quim Monter, Diego Pulido, Dani Calvo, Alex Montero and Oriol Bonet.

Marc works in order to provide a new life to the recycled skateboards, that have been skated intensively. Wood got highly durability and resistance but still have come to crack or split. Is here where Marc feels comfortable with this noble and nice material such as wood (native from the forests of Canada and considered one of the best wood in the world, for the realization of skateboards, maple wood).

A woodworking craftsmen and mechanics, first washes the original drawing, sanding wood and then, based on sketches done in pencil, and he applies a new design with markers (Posca) and spray paint (Mtn), reaching a new custom object with a unique design, and all this from a recycled skateboard or sometimes on a new blank deck.
