ISM: SK8OLOGY // fine art on skateboards

September 25, 2008


forgot to put this up…the ISM skate deck show is out…info:

On Saturday August 23, 2008, at 7 p.m. the ISM: gallery will be hosting an exhibition showcasing over 100 creative deck canvases from some of today’s most exciting artists and professional skaters. Contributions from Jason Lee, Mike Shinoda, Chris Pastras, Danny Gonzalez, and Nathan Pratt will be displayed: along with pieces from Audrey Kawasaki, Aaron Jasinski, Blaine Fontana, Brian Viveros and Joshua Clay.

Contributing artists and professional skaters are donating their creative deck canvases to raise awareness and resources in an effort to support Now That You Know, a non-profit organization that helps to provide ambitious girls from developing countries a secure environment for learning and growth.

The ISM: gallery is located in the Koo’s Art Center at 540 East Broadway in Long Beach. The exhibit will be on display at the ISM: gallery for one month before it travels to San Diego in September. While in San Diego, SK8OLOGY will be displayed in the Action Sports Retailer (ASR) Trade Show.

    I always wonder if there’s any space that cannot be covered with art. Yeah, these skateboards are logical step, but I wonder if we’re going to live in a world actually composed of art, where everything will have at least a tiny bit of artistic value, such as this:

    Which, sadly, is not out current state.
