Mekanism Skateboard Company recently partnered with German artist Dirk Skreber to custom paint a new series of skateboard decks. Skreber explores imagery related to natural and man made disasters. In this project,
he renders the pieces of a vehicle in the process of being blown up, which is further echoed in the fragmented grid of skateboard decks. In total Skeber completed fifty skateboard decks in over four paintings.
The artist, who was born in 1961, currently lives and works in New York City and Dusseldorf, Germany. His rencent exhibition Blutgeschwindigkeit (Blood Speed) is currently on view at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany and will travel to the Museum Franz Gertsch, Burgdorf, Switzerland. The artist is currently represented by Blum and Poe in Los Angeles and Friedrich Petzel Gallery in NYC.
