Wrapped in custom kitty skull artwork, Oakley’s Caia Koopman Signature Series Stockholm goggles might just be the coolest goggles ever.

For the past couple months we’ve been getting frequent updates from Los Angeles based artist Caia Koopman as the painter was furiously preparing for a series of solo shows across France with the Spacejunk Galleries. With the work now safely landed and on display in Bayonne, we figured it would be a good time to take a look at the images in chronological order and present you, our readers, with an insightful step by step look at her process and progress. Enjoy!
