The Red Bull Wake Open Art Project

Using wakeboards as their canvas, we asked a selection of artists "What gives you wings?"

The Wake Art Project is the merging of art and sport; a collaboration between Kick Start My Art and Red Bull, to celebrate Red Bull Wake Open. Nineteen artists have created unique pieces of art, using wakeboards as their canvas, with their creations inspired by the question "What gives you wings?" Take a look at their creations and their personal answers.

The art will be on display and available for the public to vote on their favorite pieces during Red Bull Wake Open at the Tampa Convention Center July 5 and 6. The boards with the most votes will be awarded to the winning Wake athletes as their trophies.
