Scotty Greathouse is a Santa Cruz surf/skate rat who spent countless hours staring at art & graphics as a kid, unaware he'd join the art ranks the way he has. Inspired, yet far from a duplicator, he likes colliding varying mediums, free from all rules. Creation through experimentation is the ideal process for him and his work is different because he needs it to be: Xanadu Surfboards, Consolidated Skateboards, Skateworks, Sessions and now, Merge4 have run his graphics worldwide. His words have graced the pages of Thrasher, Heckler and Juice. While his murals have blasted the walls of LinkedIn, AnnieGlass and Lucille Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. He's showed work in numerous venues including California's Seeing Things, Cukui, empire 7, and Gund Galleries. He runs his business ideasforwalls.com, peddles gear thru his ideasforwalls.bigcartel and spends every moment he possibly can with his two sons, Branden and Lee.
