Skate Art

The following art works were created using a skate board and were shown mainly at the 7ply exhibition.


Surfboard made from a skateboard deck.

I cut and shaped the skateboard to look like a surfboard on scale. Then the fins were made using the cutouts.

For the background I painted a tropical scenery using oil on canvas and then placed everything on top of a tank made to look like a reef which was decorated with seaweeds and shells from South Africa and the Maldives. The tank also functioned as an aquarium where tropical fish played around in the sand.

 

Priapus

Skateboard cut and painted with oil paints as a phallic symbol. Since skateboard is mainly a men sport, this work was meant to represent the fertility and vigor of the skaters as well as the dynamics of the sport.
