Hello and welcome to another SkinnyBuddha blog. Today I would like to introduce you all to Cav aka @Raw.Sol. If you are a South Fl local you may have seen his art around town. He has murals all over the city in traditional spots like Wynwood, midtown and even in a few hospitals. Yea I said , hospitals.
During covid Raw.sol did an entire series of paintings saying "not all heroes wear capes" implying our medical professionals are the real heroes.
"Not all Heroes Wear Capes"
We met Raw Sol through local events and vendor markets. Then spent some time with him at Zen Awakening Art Festivals. He came up to our tent looking to make a trade for some SkinnyBuddha gear. He had an amazing wood buddha pineapple head necklace that immediately grabbed my eye. I mean, we are working the SkinnyBuddha booth at the time so clearly im in a Buddha frame of mind. We made the trade and soon decided we needed to collaborate on a project.

This collaboration worked its way into existence in the form of the Pineapple Blanco shirt design. Once printed, I rushed down and met Raw Sol on site of a mural he was working on. We clearly needed to do a quick photoshoot to commemorate the moment. Who couldn't use a little more content these days? Here are a few photos of Raw Sol in his new SkinnyBuddha Pineapple Blanco shirt design.
I have to admit I am a fan of the pics we took that day. I am also a fan on this shirt design. We actually created a limited edition "hyper salmon" color way to match a specific pair of shoes I own. Sorry folks the Hyper Salmon was limited edition and has already been sold out.
The white color way is a classic, it matches with almost every thing. The design is simple but clean with Raw Sol's style all over it.
There are a few of these left in stock. Inventory is limited so snag yours today. Help support our growing business and the creative community. Or just buy it because Raw Sol is the man and his tripped out surf style art is amazing!
