Since a graphic was first hand-drawn onto a board, the culture of skateboarding has been creative and visual, with by-products such as videos, stickers, magazines, board graphics and clothing. In recent years more skateboarders than ever have turned to art as another outlet for their creativity and an increasing number of exhibitions focus on art produced by skateboarders. "Concrete to Canvas" brings together, for the first time, a wide variety of the finest work, whether on skate decks, canvas, computers, in sketchbooks or on the streets. Many of the artists selected for inclusion have used the street as their canvas, while also exhibiting in galleries internationally, often fusing spray paints and marker pens with oils and acrylics. Artists are featured alphabetically and the work is accompanied by brief commentaries and quotes its relationship with skateboarding.Über den Autor:
