The Decked Project

Last night I attended the opening of The Decked Project held at The Coningsby Gallery in London. The exhibition featured all hand painted long Boards, short boards and old antique skateboards. The majority of the artists were from London, so it gave me a good chance to check out the local talent that seems to keep coming out of the wood work. The exhibition was curated by Vicky Newman, an illustrator and recent art graduate who just wanted to do something for her fellow illustrators in the UK. It was a very successful opening night and I couldnt resist getting one of the handpainted decks for my collection.

show these guys some support by visiting:

Lovely little write up. I had a deck and a pair of vans in this show but couldn't make it down to the opening, so thanks for some lovely photos.
