Whoever owns this building in Chicago chose a quality cast of artists informally trained in the art of decorating exteriors. The buildings first paint additions started with the Skewville roller and the Roa characters. Now, the building has been officially pimped and covered with additional work from Reyes, Pose, Omens, and Amuse.

Reminiscent of throwing old kicks over wires, Skewville often throws their own custom kicks in the air to be left dangling. Made of wood, cut out, and painted, often the wires can be tricky to throw at. Check out this video as they run around the city of Chicago.

We know of Skewville quite well, as we featured them on the site with an extensive interview last year. Tonight, January 14 in San Francisco, Skewville opens a new exhibition, Playground Tactics. This will be Skewville’s first solo project with White Walls, curated by Tova Lobatz, with approximately 30 pieces and an installation that will encompass and connect the Skewville style to the indoor space.

Skewville was recently in Chicago for a show at Pawn Works and had the opportunity to customize a local school bus. Love this photo.

From NYC to London, and Berlin to the Mayan Temples of Mexico, Skewville have taken these sneakers you see here and made them postcard moments. Interview after the jump . . .
