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, skateboard magazines have begun to include more features on artwork, 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 by these artists, 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, as well as exhibiting in galleries, often fusing spray paints and marker pens with oils and acrylics. As well as skateboarders, this book will appeal to a wider art and design audience of graffiti and street artists, illustrators and graphic designers. It opens with an introduction by the authors explaining the concept of the book and examining the link between art and skating. Artists are featured alphabetically, with examples of their work accompanied by a brief commentary, including quotes from the artists discussing their work and its relationship with skateboarding.
