David Shrigley "Politicians Make me Sick" Skate Deck for Park Life

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Sometimes the best part about skate deck art is when an unexpected artist get the right graphic created. I wouldn't think of British artist David Shrigley to be one of the skate graphic types, but his fantastic "Politicians Make Me Sick" deck for our friends at Park Life in San Francisco works just right. Made in a limited quantity of 150, the deck is going for $125 on the Park Life site.

In addition to Yoshikawa's heavy aesthetics, he also finished the skateboards with his signature psychedelic resin style. These will be available exclusively at the Deus Temple show room.

New Paintings and Sketches by Andrew Pommier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 31, 2013
A few weeks back, we told you about Andrew Pommier's new show in Tokyo, but we thought it may be a good time to showcase some of Pommier's 2013 selection of paintings and sketches on the site today. As always, Pommier has his original and interesting take on a figurative portrait, and we love what he has been doing over the past few years with his fine art.

We've seen the likes of ROA and Andy Hope 1930 team up with The Sk8room. Recently added to the roster was Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, who you might remember from when he received international attention regarding his wrongful imprisonment. Weiwei created three different designs for The Sk8Room and they're now available for about $400USD.

All month long, in conjunction with our Beastie Boys special issue, we have been asking some of our friends about their favorite BB's memories.

Photos and more after the jump…

Last Thursday Patrick O’Dell’s photo exhibit “Skateboard High School” opened at Known Gallery in Los Angeles. On hand to check out the show were skateboarders, actors, models and scenesters.

Preview: Haroshi "Virtual Reality" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 10, 2013
As you may have already known, Haroshi has made an impression on the art world in recent years for his recycled skateboard sculptures. The Japanese artist is set to open a new solo show, Virtual Reality, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC on Saturday, January 12. The repetition of skating, the craft of perfecting the right trick, comes out in the methodical arrangement of the plywood decks into recognizable characters and shapes.
