A break from the usual BMX videos, this piece on sign painter Nicolai Sclater had my eyes locked from beginning to end. Nicolai, who goes under the working title Ornamental Conifer, is a long time BMX rider, artist, graphic designer, etc. and you may recognize his lettering style from the cover of The Albion issue 8 where he painted the back of a leather jacket (Till The Wheels Fall Off). This video profiles him and the dying art of sign painting as he explains his work and beautifully paints a glass store front window. Found on The Diggest.
