Get on Board with Skateboard Art at Cities
Since their street cred soared in the early Eighties, skateboards have been noted for the vibrant artwork on their undersides. Now Greek-American designer Fotis Gerakis has curated a show with the aim of taking this inner-city creativity off the sidewalks and onto gallery walls. An award-winning art director, Gerakis asks viewers to reconsider their preconceptions of street art by using contradictory symbols – in his triptych Divas, a trio of iconic beauties are rendered as fine-art drawings on surfaces where one would least expect to find them.
