Skateboarding, and the culture that surrounds it, is an outlet for self expression. Every skater has a distinctive style, motivation and statement to convey. The smooth underbelly of a skateboard can double as a unique surface for painting and drawing.
Thumbprint Gallery will be presenting a group of artists using skateboard decks to create their own art pieces for the show titled “Deck the Walls” at BASIC on December 18th, 2012.
From the half pipe to the walls, these contemporary skateboards will be displayed in this art show for viewers to enjoy.
