Who We Are
TAGGER GASPARIAN “TAG”
Former pro surfer turned custom painter, Tagger Gasparian brings a rare combo of talent to Bell’s artist team.
Growing up in Laguna Beach, California, Tag was exposed to art at an early age. His father was a world-renowned oil painter, and Tag received his first paintbrush early. He also started surfing young, and traveled the world as a professional surfer throughout the eighties. As a hobby, he combined his favorite two loves together: painting and surfboards. It started with just a few illustrations on boards for friends, but the top surfboard manufacturers instantly recognized Tag’s work. After leaving the tour, Tag became an artist for Channel Islands Surfboards, where he worked for several years. In 2005, he was introduced to the motocross industry and fell in love with a whole new design medium. He then started painting helmets for the best riders around, and began working with Bell. Tag’s individualistic style and dedication to doing things on his own terms has made him a perfect fit for the Bell artist team.
