It’s hard to not be fascinated by physical feats and the movements of athletes. This is part of a body of work that is celebrating art of dancing and the similarities to skateboarding. The ballet has always been a well respected form of performance art and appreciated by the high society whereas skateboarding has been struggling to shed the counter culture / rebellious image that the public has placed on it. Behind the preconceived notions and stereotypes of the these two activities you will find a vast amount of similarities.
In both fields you will find a artistic people who push themselves to the limits of their physical capabilities and are slightly obsessed with style in movement. So next time you see a skateboarder zipping through a busy sidewalk or a dancer spinning through the air remember they are the future of our creative landscape and the mediums for a beautiful world.
