Late one evening, I received a text message from my friend, AJ Voelpel. That text read, “Art!! I am going to make fu$king art!!” I am not sure how many cocktails AJ had consumed but it was clear that he was passionate about his project. Only months later, Good Boy Originals (GBO) would burst onto the scene with some of the coolest and cleanest golf art in the industry.
You only need to take one look at GBO’s inspiration page to understand what AJ was so fired up about that evening. AJ takes matchbooks, tees, pencils, ball markers and divot tools, from some of the world’s most notorious golf clubs and poses them luridly. He calls his work limited object art and It is seriously cool.
Warning: Do not play with matches at home. AJ is a professional match book handler.
As an avid collector of golf objects myself, I have struggled with the best ways to display my collections. Good Boy Originals has this figured out in a beautiful manner. I recently acquired my very own 11x14 Golf Dreams piece and immediately became one of my favorite things on my wall.
The good news is that if you can’t find something that inspires you, Good Boy Originals will work with you to create that custom piece that will set your wall on fire.
