Inspired by culture, music, and the people who surround them, Paradise Skills is the collaboration of childhood friends who survived and flourished through the streets of Southeast San Diego. Realizing it was crucial to share their side of the story, these 1st generation Filipino-Americans made it a mission to elevate, infiltrate and take over the system in order to convey their lifestyle through unique works of art.

Rooted in the late 80’s, from black sketch books and spray paint to professions that protect our country and promote our future, these original collections show the fruit of each artist’s creative path as they developed their own expression.
