Skate Art by Romain Hurdequint
From the object to the Artwork.
The 2000s proved a turning point for the skateboard and its relationship to art.
Having become a reflection of the different movements of our society, this ordinary everyday object is constantly evolving.
Previously restricted to practical use, the skate deck left the pavement to appear on the walls of galleries and auction houses. Such was the advent of an entirely new contemporary art movement, laconically baptised Skate Art. From silk-screening to Posca markers, from repurposing and twisted shapes to upcycling broken boards, this volume provides an overview of the most significant techniques and decks of the last two decades.
In its 320 pages, this anthology presents a specialised and eclectic selection of decks made by artists from all over the world.
