Mark Gonzales, legendary skateboarder and artist.
Beastie Boys friend Ari Marcopoulos (he directed the music video for "Somethings Got to Give" and did a book about Ad Rock) was born in Amsterdam/Holland and lives & works in New York and California.
"Ari Marcopoulos — photographer, film artist and adventurist, who began his career in New York City assisting Andy Warhol, transplants himself into the intimate lives of people living on the edge. Artists, snowboarders, musicians, and skateboarders have been both muses and commercial subject-matter throughout his quarter century career as a photographer. His stunning landscapes and playful portraiture offer a dramatic take on every day life, and a glimpse into all things awe-some." (http://www.afgmanagement.com/arimarcopoulos/bio.html)
