Sneak Peek: Caia Koopman Signature Series

Caia lovebird art

For the second consecutive year, Oakley has enlisted the talent of renowned snowboard artist Caia Koopman to grace our top selling Forsake™ sunglasses. With this release, Oakley offers women a wearable work of art created specifically for them.

Oakley’s quintessential active sunglasses, Forsake, reaches a new level of artistry in the Caia Koopman Signature Series, embodying the elegance, strength, and vulnerability of femininity. In this signature series version, original graphics by the California skate/surf/snow artist wrap around the sculpted toric shield. With her fine eye for beauty, inclinations toward nature, and the collectiveness of the female spirit, Caia’s work is alluring with a hint of whimsy—a perfect representation of the Oakley Women’s brand.

Caia is inspired by nature, dreams, politics, and life. Her paintings have been used commercially for many years as graphics for snowboards, skateboards and wakeboards for major companies such K2, Morrow, and Hyperlite. Caia has also been featured on MTV, “mtv sports” as an athlete/artist for her snowboarding and painting. Caia has shown her paintings in a number of galleries around the world and most recently at La Luz de Jesus in LA. She is currently working as a freelance illustrator and painter in Oceanside, CA.
