“Basquiat is an important influence for artists all over the world, and an inspiration to young black men like myself. Basquiat played a valuable role in changing the way people perceive art and street culture. He was one of the first people to go from the street to the gallery and to bring that energy into the art world at large. Without him contemporary street artists would not have the mainstream recognition that they do today.” -Stevie Bell
Stevie Bell is not only know for his talent on a snowboard, but also for his charisma. Whether its an appearance on Fuel TV’s Daily Habit, or a lifestyle clip in one of the Forum team videos Bell captures viewers attention with his outgoing and energetic personality.
Bell first broke on to the snowboard scene with his shared video part in Finga On Da Trigga’s 2005 production. Driven by his pure love for skateboarding and snowboarding, Bell’s riding progressed rapidly. The Utah Native grabbed top pro rider, JP Walker’s attention and was subsequently added to the Forum World Team in 2006. That year Bell proved himself with amazing urban handrail tricks and major strides into the backcountry while riding alongside some of the best pros in the world including, JP Walker and Devun Walsh. Since then Bell has had 3 more solid video parts in Forum team videos including this year’s Forever.
Bell has earned the #6 spot on Transworld’s Exposure Meter (a tabulation of coverage in major snowboard magazines). Recently Bell was also featured in The Source magazine and on the cover of Transworld Snowboarding’s 2010 Photo Issue. He continues to garner masses of coverage in magazines and on film, and strives to take his riding to the next level.
