Concrete 2 Canvas
More Skateboarders' ArtBook - 2007
Following the successful Concrete to Canvas, this second volume of skater-art is the only collection of art by international skateboarders from around the world--including Canada's Chris Dyer--and comes with a foreword by star skater-artist lori-d.Skating culture is highly creative and visual, with byproducts such as board graphics, videos, stickers, magazines and clothing. Since the first graphic was hand-drawn onto a board, there has been a deep-rooted connection between skateboarding and art. As more skater-artists emerge, skateboard magazines feature more artwork in their pages and the number of exhibitions focusing on skater-art is also increasing.Each artist's work is highly individual and distinctive, and there is a huge variety in genre, style, method, medium, subject matter, inspiration and influence. The work featured in Concrete 2 Canvas includes digital art, street art, fine art, paintings, drawings, doodles, illustration and installation.
