ABOUT THE ART

Skateboard graphics took a quantum leap in offensive potential after the sport was reborn aesthetically and otherwise in the '90s. Artists like Shepard Fairey, Marc McKee, Todd Francis, Mike Hill, Michael Sieben, Ed Templeton, Sean Cliver, Moish Brenman, Fos, Ben Horton, Alyasha Owerka-Moore, Eli Morgan Gesner, Jeremy Fish, Brice Raysseguier, Johnny "Mojo" Munnerlyn, Alex Kramer, Todd Bratrud, Winston Tseng and others brought dark humor and politically incorrect topics to the forefront of their work.
