If you’re a huge fan of art, you would probably be found roaming the halls of museums and galleries not only locally, but in cities you travel to as well. You look for inspiration in a lot of things you encounter out in the world, and find solace in the wonderful mix of colors and lines to create the most breathtaking images possible. You believe in the way these creations inspire, and use them to bring more color to the way you live your life.
However, this does not even begin to explain how much art there is out in the world, because sometimes, real art cannot be found in frames on walls and within quiet halls. Sometimes, real art is found out in the streets, where the pace is fast and the noise is deafening. Sometimes, real art can be found right under those skateboard decks that your teenaged neighbor owns.
A Different Form of Art
Yes, skateboard decks have become a popular medium for more extreme artists to place their work on. And to a lot of people’s surprise, these decks do not necessarily carry angst-ridden teen art all the time. The art found on skateboard decks have actually evolved through time, with the designs becoming more mature and meaningful.
There’s a lot of color, but not all the time. Some decks use elaborate design elements that could actually fit right into a sophisticated art gallery. Some stay within the confines of trendy pop culture, but with a more refined approach used. Some may still carry some content that other people may find offensive, but hey, art actually is an honest expression of one’s beliefs, right? So that’s exactly what this medium does for this rare breed of artists.
As you look at these designs, you will also notice a very keen attention to detail, with a lot of the images created opening up your imagination as to just how much sweat was poured out to bring the concepts to life. And yet, some also prefer a minimalist approach, with clean lines and neutral colors that intend to soothe. No matter how widely different each design could be from the others, the high degree of seriousness by which every skateboard deck artist applies to their work is evident every step of the way.
